Reflections of Life in Our Town is a satirical look at life and values in small town America. The book is occasionally absurd, occasionally offensive, sometimes sensitive, but mostly just funny. Our Town does not exist in a time, nor does it really inhabit a specific place, though most of it's inhabitants believe that they are somewhere in Ohio, and all agree that they are definitely on the planet Earth. The citizens of Our Town live life pretty much as any Americans do, dealing with such issues as the spread of communism, the rise of the superstore, and rampaging ogres at the end of the street (?), as we all would. The cast of characters in Our Town is wildly varied, from the senile village elder, Grandpa Genkaku, to the physically indescribable Laughlin twins. There is a child prodigy with a fish bowl on her head, a many tentacled alien from the dark side of Saturn, and of course, the aforementioned ogres. Though varied, together they form a relatively tight community trying to cope with the trials of everyday life. And everyday life in Our Town is pretty much like life in any town. You have your good days and your bad; your successes and your failures. One day, a wandering band of angels is scandalizing the local women, the next day, the circus comes to town. Life is kind of like a roller coaster that way. The citizens of Our Town also offer forays into outer space in order to rediscover previously discovered planets, and a quest for god while in pursuit of a red balloon. While life in Our Town may not be quite as exciting as life in places like Toledo, we generally manage to fill our days quite well. So, these are my reflections of life in Our Town. While some may seem a bit bizarre at first glance, upon closer inspection, they really are not that much different from the things most people experience in life. After all, its about values, and an appreciation for the things which we hold most dear. So, join me as I take a stroll down memory lane. Relax, and have a laugh, just be careful not to step in any ogre $#!?...

In the early morning hours of October 23, 1986, Earl Morey was shot to death in a small town in the Northwest Corner region of Connecticut. Salisbury, Connecticut, a seemingly calm, pastoral and peaceful community, has a sordid, evil underbelly. The lavish weekend homes of wealthy New Yorkers stand only short distances from the dilapidated homesteads of the local working class. This is both a story about a murder, and a revealing study of the juxtaposition of the "haves" and the "have-nots," in small-town America.

Ours is a little town in that part of the country called the West by those who live east of the Alleghanies, and referred to lovingly as "back East" by those who dwell west of the Rockies. It is a country town where, as the song goes, "you know everybody and they all know you," and the country newspaper office is the social clearing-house.When a man has published a paper in a country community for many years, he knows his town and its people, their strength and their weakness, their joys and their sorrows, their failings and their prosperity—or if he does not know these things, he is on the road to failure, for this knowledge must be the spirit of his paper. The country editor and his reporters sooner or later pass upon everything that interests their town.

Excerpt from In Our Town To country lanes, and nothing but dewy verdure, Where the corn-crakes could be heard, and soft patches of woodland lying between it and the sunset on its western side, and far to the north the grey arm of the sea, dotted with islands and with sails. N OW the back windows look on to lanes still, but they are stable-lanes; and the sun sets over chimneys, and is blurred and smoky; and one's neighbours' underlinen flaps in unblushing effrontery in every back garden on the earlier days of the week; and on Saturday nights the monotonous sound Of the beating of carpets rises from the stable haunts and defies interference.
