Every year on the Fourth of July, Jeeters wife Lou struts in the town parade wearing suspenders made of jumper cables with a tow chain around her waist. Those in the knowwhich means everyone in townchuckle at Lous silent commentary on her husbands skill as an automotive mechanic. But Jeeter has a different perspective: Thats my wife right there, he tells a stranger. She knows cars. Author Bill Schubart brings to life the friends and characters of his native Lamoille County, where in the late 1950s and early 1960s, life was lived close to the earth and often against the grain. Schubarts collection of twenty-two stories captures Vermont in its transition from an enclave of hill farms and small towns where everyone knew your grandfather to a place where vehicles bearing license plates from away mix with hippie vans filled with born-again Vermonters getting back to the land]until snowfall. Its a time and place where the Jeeters of The Lamoille Stories rub elbows with the ladies of the Uplift Club, all to the fiddle accompaniment of Qubcois music played by people whose conversations often weave French and English together in a single sentence. Schubarts full-hearted and compassionate evocation of this Vermont is by turns poignant, funny and savory. The stories give readers a good excuse to stay up too late to discover how Wyvis will circumvent the new Vermont prohibition on having more than three junk cars in your yard or how Charlie is going to get Edgar to pay him for his new chimney. Schubarts thoroughly enjoyable short story collection is as finely etched as the frost crystals on your winter window. Amusez-vous bien! Bill Schubarts Vermont stories of a mostly-forgotten time and place arefresh, authentic, funny in places and sad in others. He knows his corner of the Green Mountains inside out and writes with honesty and grace about its people. Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances, Mary Blythe, and On Kingdom Mountain

As its title suggests, this collection is a sort of human list and found department. It is peopled with odd, vivid characters, often alone and displaced, immigrants from Turkey, Algeria, Egypt, Chile or lost souls in their own homeland, wanderers in whose world the miraculous is ever lurking, always possible. Many live in Paris —a dilapidated, largely unseen Paris of sweatshops and dingy hotels. Some have left their countries, like the wily Miss Carmen, to see what could be had; others, like the clubfooted Sliman, are driven by spiritual desire. For all of them, the experience of exile, real or imagined, is a catalyst to liberation—a liberation described by Marsella with compassion and a touch of the mystical.
