Meh. I suspect these essays/columns read much better in their newspaper, especially if you know the people discussed. Some of the columns are cute, some are sad, most are too sappy for me, and entirely too many push the "small towns are better!!" crap I don't believe in. It's easy to find this sort of community in a city--though not the horses, unless perhaps you have horse property.

I love Bohjalian's fiction. At least this was a fast read.
