He only cares about the Boston area, apparently, and he leaves little to talk about further west since there aren't many places of literary excellence. This guy is irritating, self-absorbed, and tenure-hungry. Did you really need to inform us your friend (!!!!) dated Sylvia Plath? It doesn't give you any more credit. Also, why route 20? Route 30 is the real Great Road of America.
Run far, far away from this book. It's like a terrible history text book with the author seeking credibility for knowing a bit about Boston's literary scene.
