A Short History of a Small Place by T. R. Pearson

Marvelously funny, bittersweet, and beautifully evocative, the original publication of A Short History of a Small Placeannounced the arrival of one of our great Southern voices. Although T. R. Pearsons Neely, North Carolina, doesnt appear on any map of the state, it has already earned a secure place on the literary landscape of the South. In this introduction to Neely, the young narrator, Louis Benfield, recounts the tragic last days of Miss Myra Angelique Pettigrew, a local spinster and former town belle who, after years of total seclusion, returns flamboyantly to public view-with her pet monkey, Mr. Britches. Here is a teeming human comedy inhabited by some of the most eccentric and endearing characters ever encountered in literature.
