Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A hilarious lampoon of a town gone wrong profiles Wigfield, in danger when the government tears down the dam re-opening the salmon run but demolishes Wigfield in the process, until smug, self-important journalist Russell Hokes appears hoping to save the day. Reprint. 50,000 fist printing.


Review:

"The book is one of those rare works of satire that combine creative form, uproariously funny text and a painfully sharp underpinning of social criticism."

Publishers Weekly, 04/28/2003
