Overview

Novelist Bateman (Pinelands, Whitman's Tomb) offers six new stories set in his native Southern New Jersey. While providing plenty of authentic local color in his portrayal of small-town and farm life, the bustle of the Jersey shore with its boardwalks, and the solitude and otherworldliness of the famous Pine Barrens, Bateman's sensitively portrayed protagonists are the stars here. The title story tells of an Italian prisoner of war laboring on a South Jersey farm circa 1940. There, he finds danger and dreams, friendship and romance—and, ultimately, more fireworks than he could have wished for.
