Watch with Me: And Six Other Stories of the Yet-Remembered Ptolemy Proudfoot and his Wife, Miss Minnie, nee Quinch
In these seven interrelated stories we are again invited to Port William, Kentucky. Rich with humor and wisdom, this collection describes the depth of affection and tolerance for eccentricity that these neighbors bear toward one another, and highlights the comic and often poignant ways they cope with the intrusions of the 20th century into their idyllic, agrarian world.
