This is a terrific slice of coastal Maine life that I highly recommend. Sanford Phippen's People Trying to Be Good is more directly autobiographical than its predecessor The Police Know Everything, though I have to say that I actually enjoyed it a bit better. Not so much a novel as a collection of stories, it is filled with humor, introspection and struggle. Everyone will see a bit of themselves or someone they know in the pages of People Trying to Be Good.
