Where We Lived: Essays on Places, Henry Allen
Henry Allen has deftly told you his family story and perhaps your family story as well.
Where We Live is a concise string of pictures painted about childhood homes, the home of his grandparents, his father's Navy Ship from WWII, his college dorm, and summer homes.
His descriptions of time and memories put into words the thoughts and feelings you may have had about had associated with family and places lived. I had to pause after reading his essay on summer homes. It truly caused me to put the book down and pause and think about these summer places where all of our good memories reside but seem so fleeting.
A book that will enhance your own view of where you've lived.
