Small Town Tales

  • A Brookline Boyhood

    Sidney Hall, Jr.

    These vivid sketches of small-town America in another era and of Mr. Hall's eccentric and marvelous family have been collected from his popular newspaper column, "A Brookline Boyhood." They are so rooted in place and time that they uncannily evoke the reader's own past. Award-winning southern novelist and poet Fred Chappell calls this a "wonderfully enjoyable book of reminiscences and speculations. Small Town Tales preserves memories the way happy farmwives preserve peaches and strawberries. The results are equally wholesome and delicious. Sidney Hall's work is a rare treat!"
