Summer Over Autumn: A Small Book of Small-Town Life (Paperback)
In Stock, Click Title for Location
Howard Mansfield muses on people, places, and life in his own hometown of Hancock, New Hampshire. "Whenever Howard Mansfield writes about the world around him, I pay attention."
--Mel Allen, editor, Yankee magazine "It's as if Walt Whitman had come out of the grave in the persona of Howard Mansfield for one more epic. I highly recommend this "small book" full of big ideas."
--Ernest Hebert, prize-winning author of Howard Elman's Farewell, The Old American, and nine other novels.
About the Author
HOWARD MANSFIELD sifts through the commonplace and the forgotten to discover stories that tell us about ourselves and our place in the world. He writes about history, architecture, and preservation. He is the author of nine books, including In the Memory House, The Bones of the Earth, The Same Ax, Twice, and Dwelling in Possibility: Searching for the Soul of Shelter which The Boston Globe called "a wholly original meditation ... that's part observation of the contemporary built environment, part cultural history, part philosophical account, and at times something like a Whitmanian poetic survey."
