In the first line of his introduction to the book 'Imagining New England', Joseph Conforti says, 'In 'The Dog Days of March' (1979), perhaps the best novel written about New Hampshire, Ernest Hebert relates the story of a transplanted Midwesterner who ... [buys and renovates a New Hampshire property] ... to bring the 'real' New England of her imagination into existence.' So, I tried The Dog Days of March. But I just didn't get the anti-hero, the depressing plot, the humor, etc. This is not a book for light entertainment. Read it if you enjoy biting satire a la 'Vanity Faire.'Was this review helpful?
