News From Heaven
NOW IN PAPERBACK
In ten interconnected short stories, Jennifer Haigh returns to the vividly imagined world of Bakerton, Pennsylvania, a coal mining town rocked by decades of painful transition. From its heyday during two world wars through its slow decline, Bakerton is a town that refuses to give up gracefully, binding—sometimes cruelly—succeeding generations to the place that made them. With a revolving cast of characters—many familiar to fans of Baker Towers—News from Heaven looks unflinchingly at the conflicting human desires for escape and for connection, and explores the enduring hold of home.
