Chistopher Boucher presents
In his previous novel How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive, a quirky and nostalgic hymn to the Pioneer Valley of thirty years ago, Christopher Boucher demonstrated his rich imagination and his ability to animate--literally--a landscape. His new offering, Golden Delicious, is set in the small town of Appleseed, Massachusetts, where you can keep a sentence as a pet, where stories grow in the ground, and your mother can one day take off and join a flying militia (and we don't mean in airplanes!) With the inventiveness and big-hearted affection that suffused his first book, Chris Boucher's new novel will charm you with its utterly original voice.
Christopher Boucher grew up in the Valley and teaches in the English Department at Boston College.
