Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner was my first book of 2016. Here are my thoughts:
Bugger. This is one of the best books I’ve read. Ever. So what happens now? Will the rest of the reading year be crap in comparison…?
It’s pretty much my perfect book. It’s got New England. And relationships. Lots of relationships. And I had a little cry.
How will I tell people about this book? …. Guess I don’t need to because it’s not like people don’t know Stegner (there was that small matter of a prize…).

Picnics feature in Crossing to Safety and fried chicken features at those picnics.
