Welcome to the newest edition of the most erudite thread on BigSoccer. Though given what some of us read, erudition is clearly a fleeting thing even in the what-are-you-reading thread! The last of my "impulse borrow" books is from a regional press from here in the Pacific Northwest. It's by a fellow named Craig Danner. Called The Fires of Edgarville, I only sort of ken the plot so far. There's a disgraced heart surgeon living with his elderly mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, in a dying (dead?) logging town in Oregon's Cascade Range. Arson, the Japanese internment, and an estrangement from a polygamous Mormon family all factor in . . . somehow.
