TEMPLE by George Dennison
Released: June 15, 1994

"A potluck with some good bits, but it is clear that the author would have made something greater than simply the sum of its parts."
Dennison (Luisa Domic, 1985, etc.) died in 1987, and this genial hodgepodge draws from his journals and his scattered notes on and interviews with people in Temple, Me., the rural community to which he migrated from New York City. Read full book review >

TEMPLE CAT by Andrew Clements
