From the Back Cover:

One of the hallmarks of fine reporting is its emotional resonance -- the ability of the prose to make the reader care. This compilation of Lary Bloom's best magazine columns does just that, bringing to life Connecticut traditions and lore, people and politics, big (and small) business, history and the arts. Collectively, these stories present a strong sense of place and are united by two common characteristics. The first is compelling narrative. The second, a sensitive expression of the stake that ordinary people have in extraordinary events.

About the Author:

Lary Bloom is a writer and former editor whose work helped establish and expand the genre of creative nonfiction. His book on writing, The Writer Within (Contemporary Books, and now Bibliopola), is considered a classic text. It is a natural result of the lessons of 35 years as a Sunday magazine editor. His monthly column in Connecticut Magazine has won an unprecedented two consecutive Silver Awards for column writing from the City and Regional Magazine Association. In addition, Bloom established and hosts the Connecticut Bloomer Awards, to honor citizens who have improved the quality of life in the state. He lives in Chester, Connecticut, in a barn house about to eaten by wisteria.
