I was in Knoxville, TN recently

I just finished a book set close to Knoxville--Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior--whoa, it was so good. Monarch butterflies, lots of scientists, poor families making do in the hills--I now know even more about the kinds of kids you were dealing with when you tried teaching school, Art. You would like it and I would have loved recommending it to GringoFool too because of the Monarchs, and his interest in them, and descriptions of his trip to see them in early 2011.

Crack open your wallet, Art, it's getting creaky from lack of use, and buy the book. Just this once. Or get it at your local library. Don't tell me you will wait until you can look for it at your gigantic McKay's Knoxville bookstore. ;-)
