Life in a New England village can be both joyful and tragic, at once ordinary and complicated. Housatonic is such a village, providing its residents with a sense of place—a sense of home. The deserted mill on the cover and the rusting water tower, which has kept watch over the village for decades, illustrate both Housatonic’s transition from past to present and its people, who cling to traditions of what was and hope for what may be.
Housatonic is a charming collection of personal essays written by one of the town’s long-term residents. In the tradition of Garrison Keillor, Bob Gray offers a perceptive, humorous, and loving commentary on village life.
