Box Socials - W.P. Kinsella This was a disappointing portrait of an Albertan community in the late forties, early fifties. I found it far too Garrison Keilor-like. If I want to read about Lake Wobegon, I will go to the source. He describes the many people in the towns, relationships, family histories, to excess. It would have been more entertaining had it had a sharper focus. As a slice of life, to the extent that it is representative, I suppose it is good. I would not recommend it.
