The small town is a haven in an unruly world. There is much reassurance in the familiar. Shirley at the post office knows everybody's name. Bingo is every Wednesday night at the Legion. The community pulls together unquestioningly for funerals, fires and parades. A small town sets the parameters for personal successes and takes the blame for failures. This is a book about people who exchange their high expectations for belonging. Small town people are loyal and resilient, with histories steeped in both tradition and subversion. They tolerate disappointment well, while a betrayal is never forgotten. Memory is the foundation of the small town, accurate or not. And memory runs deep, deeper than the abandoned gravel pit north of the tracks.

"Vibrant and humanizing . . . a fearless first collection." --Van Kunder, author, The Woman I Can't See
"Like Alice Munro, Trull writes about people you have known all your life." --Brad Smith, author, Crow's Landing
