KIRKUS REVIEW

Some of the funnier, more frustrating, and comfortingly familiar phases of working in the city, living in the country, these pieces reflect the smaller satisfactions and the larger aggravations in a life which begins with the morning struggle to make the 8:19. You will meet that nice type, the guy with ""a Little Home, a Little Mortgage, a Little Car, a Little Family, a Little Dog, and awfully Little Time on his hands"" and you will share in the disenchantment of buying a house- and repairing it later; of coping with weekend company, children, neighbors, prowlers, emergencies; of supermarket shopping; of the random routine of the local taxi system; of participation in clubs- and local politics- and the village tapro.... A disarming, appealing and generally amusing account of the commuters' circuit, this should invite an audience of fellow travelers.
