Here and Nowhere Else: Late Seasons of a Farm and Its Family

Jane Brox, Author Beacon Press (MA) $18 (143p) ISBN 978-0-8070-6200-5
When she was 10 years old, the author started to tend the farm stand during slack periods; her parents-Italian and Lebanese immigrants-sold produce from their farm in New England's Merrimack Valley. After years away, Brox returned home to live and work on the farm again. She offers here a haunting picture of a troubled brother and their aging parents. The author evokes the rhythms of farm life and the bustle of the stand during corn season. She writes about a blue Hubbard squash, about farmhands and the women who picked blueberries or staked tomatoes. This is a beautifully written tribute to the family farm. (June)
