Terry Teachout tells of growing up in a small town and, after many adventures and much confusion, going to live in a big city. The big city is New York. The small town is Sikeston, Missouri. City Limits embodies the exile's paradox: the farther he travels, the more keenly he knows that his roots are planted deep in the native soil.--from book jacket
