Abstract

The following work is a collection of short stories, each of which is set in Southeastern North Carolina in a particular medium-sized town. The stories are concerned with the idea of place and with what it is like to have lived all of one’s life in one setting. Thus, the characters here range from childhood to old age, they are from various social classes, and they occupy varying roles in both traditional and non-traditional families. The concern of this collection is how people of all stripes occupy a single place for generations, and more specifically what the nature of community is.
