I m very torn on this book At first I could not put it down but I quickly got bored It was initially fascinating because it was such a detailed accounting of what a small ish Ohio town was like 50 100 years ago But the author s writing made it impossible for me to keep up interest It was so dry and there was no story to the book Just a lot of descriptions but there was nothing really holding them all together in a narrative.

You have to read this every few years to remember how beautiful language can be.

Pretty dry I had a hard time following the descriptions of houses, streets, etc But it s a good reference for small town Americana so I ll probably keep it around.

Having since the disturbing film Gummo, I have often wondered about the Xenia, Ohio from before the April 3, 1974 F5 tornadocut a path directly through the middle of Xenia during the 1974 Super Outbreak, the second largest series of tornadoes in recorded history, and destroyed almost half of the city s buildings This does that, first published 1956 and looking back to a Nineteenth Century 60s and 70s and when authored recalled grandfatherly denizens that were Civil War veterans Wistful, nostalgi [...]
