A Long Way from Chicago: A Novel in Stories (Puffin Modern Classics) by Richard Peck

What happens when Joey and his sister, Mary Alice -- two city slickers from Chicago -- make their annual summer visits to Grandma Dowdels seemingly sleepy Illinois town?August 1929: They see their first corpse, and he isnt resting easy. August 1930: The Cowgill boys terrorize the town, and Grandma fights back. August 1931: Joey and Mary Alice help Grandma trespass, poach, catch the sheriff in his underwear, and feed the hungry -- all in one day.And theres more, as Joey and Mary Alice make seven summer trips to Grandmas -- each one funnier than the year before -- in self-contained chapters that readers can enjoy as short stories or take together for a rollicking good novel. In the tradition of American humorists from Mark Twain to Flannery OConnor, popular author Richard Peck has created a memorable world filled with characters who, like Grandma herself, are larger than life and twice as entertaining.Richard Peck lives in New York City.
