DOWN EAST

An amusing and original tale, or rather collection of tall tales, woven together through the medium of an interchange of contributions of two down Mainers relating to their respective grandfathers, each aiming to outdo the other in extravagant claims, against a background of early days in Maine. The Paul Bunyan type of tale, quieter and more subtle in implications; ties up with modern trends, and makes use of the polemic form. Good entertainment.
