Abstract:

Excerpt on back of dust jacket: "Twenty-five years ago, I invented a small town and started telling stories about it on the radio and ever since then, people have asked me if it's a real town, and if it is, then where is it? I used to tell them that it's fiction. But they were disappointed. People want stories to be true. So I started telling people the town is in central Minnesota, near Stearns County, up around Holdingford, not far from St. Rosa and Albany and Freport, which is sort of the truth, I guess."
