Does small town America exist? Yest, but it may surprise you. Kidder brings Northampton, Massachusetts to life in this story told through the eyes of a local cop, the mayor, the judge, an obsessive compulsive former lawyer, and a student at Smith College who has a son and collects welfare.

Appeals: Multiple viewpoints, crime and punishment, character-driven, peppered with history, small-town politics, drugs and homelessness.
