By Brian Doyle

Like Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood and Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio, Brian Doyle’s wonderful fiction debut brings a city to existence during the jumbled lives and braided tales of its people.

In a small city at the Oregon coast there are amorous affairs and almost-love-affairs, secret and hilarity, bears and tears, brawls and boats, a garrulous logger and a silent general practitioner, rain and discomfort, Irish immigrants and Salish tales, dust and laughter. There’s a division of Public Works that offers haircuts and counts bugs, a policeman hooked on Puccini, a philosophizing crow, beer and berries. An excursion is fixed, a criminal offense dedicated, and there’s an unbelievably large picnic at the soccer box. infants are born. A motor vehicle is lower in part with a observed. A river confesses what it’s thinking…

It’s the story of a city, written in a different and lyrical voice, and readers will shut the booklet greater than a bit unhappy to depart the village of Neawanaka, at the rainy coast of Oregon, underneath the hills that used to boast the most important timber within the historical past of the world.
