really liked it
Read in April, 2009

This book was written during WW2 and there are plenty of Rockwell-esque moments here--boys running around a small town with colorfully-nicknnamed chums, creaky old guy running the local telegraph station, women with big hair attending their monthly social gathering. But there's real depth here as well, and insightful comments on the human condition, particularly during the pain of wartime.

I ran across this author as part of the Best Short Stories of the Century anthology and recommend him as a colorful author with a deft hand at prose.
