Home TownLarge Print - 1999
A Pulitzer Prize winning author. "... a richly textured portrait of the values of small-town America ..." - Library Journal. One of America's masters of nonfiction takes us home - into Hometown USA, the town of Northampton, Massachusetts, and into the extraodinary, and the ordinary, lives that people live there. As Tracy Kidder reveals how, beneath its amiable surface, a small town is a place of startling complexity, he also explores what it takes to make a modern small town a success story. Does the kind of small town that many Americans come from, or long for, still exist? Kidder says yes, although not quite in the form we may imagine.
