Review - A Short History of a Small Place
I took a risk here. The book was billed as similar to Faulkner. It was set in a small southern town. It was full of madness and death and troubles. And it was the funniest book I've read in a long time. Find out how the angel of the Lord fell through the roof of the stable. Read about the chinless Masseys and the big-eared Masseys. Discover how not to kill pigeons. It took me a long time to read because I kept rereading long passages to my wife.
