Culture Shock

Photo Finish

First, I must extend my thanks and congratulations to all the photographers who submitted works to our fifth annual Photo Contest this year.

Book Review

Life in Anywhere, U.S.A.

The Blue Star by Tony Earley

The Blue Star

The worst thing about sequels is how so many borrow upon the brilliance of what came before without repaying the debt. So let me get this out of the way: Tony Earley’s new novel, The Blue Star, is a very fine book, full of moments of humor and tenderness, prose so glassine you almost forget it is there. But it is a very different novel from Jim the Boy, Earley’s 2001 novel about a 9-year-old growing up in the ’30s in the shade of three kindly uncles, his widowed mother and the hills of North Carolina.
