It is a somewhat rare and deeply satisfying experience to read a novel written by someone you know personally, especially when the writing speaks to you with beauty and grace. This was one of those experiences for me. Linzer's book (the first of a trilogy) reads like poetry and evokes a place, a time, and people (La Connor Washington, the 70s, fascinating characters, some native to the area, some transplanted) with a clarity that makes you think you're experiencing something familiar from your past for the first time (or in a fresh, new way).

Novel tells the story of Fish Town, a self-invented community that took root along the banks of the north fork of the Skagit River, near La Conner, Washington. Non-circulating
