It's Woody Allen (the writer Woody) meets Sherwood Anderson with a touch of Ambrose Bierce.
Lots of mildly amusing anecdotes, couple of out loud laughs.

Spyker's cast of characters in an imagined upstate New York setting are each treated as a brief biographical sketch, a miniature masterpiece of concision. I read this long ago, but its form and intent took root and formed the basis for The Agincourt Project, my own exploration of the intense relationship between narrative and place.

Spyker is a pseudonym for author Richard Elman (1934-1997)
