CONTENTS: "Continuation of Edgar Lee Masters' famous Spoon River Anthology, describes in 322 micro-biographies the spiritual and physical disintegration of a small American town in the 1920s. He describes the people who leave, the new people who come in, those who adjust, others who insulate themselves and cling to earlier days. The result is a painful clash of conflicting values. EXAMPLE: Pg. 120 - 'Leonard Failes: Why did you bury me next to Ernest Tyron, the theoretical pessimist? For I was the real thing. Failing in the laundry business at forty years of age, I lay down and never worked again. What was the use? There was no use, and I lived the idea to eighty years, supported by wife and children!'."
