Overview

Burb Appeal Too by Tina Traster

Burb Appeal is a humorous collection of essays based on Tina Traster's newspaper columns about moving from the city to the suburbs. In these brief stories, Traster uses keen detail, humor and pathos to tell how she has embraced and navigated life in a rural suburb north of Manhattan. In these stories we meet nutty neighbors, bumbling town officials, new friends, a plethora of domestic and wild animals, and of course, her family.
