Editorial Reviews

Review

"Needles writes better, with a finer sense of pitch and rhythm, than most of the dramatists whose work we are asked to take seriously."
National Post
 
"Like visiting an old friend, but how many people do you know who are actually as entertaining as Walt Wingfield?... Comic gold."
Toronto Star
 
"Persephone Township may not be on the map, but it is nonetheless in the Canadian pysche."
The Globe and Mail
 
"Chock full of puckish humour and a keen eye for human foibles."
Times Colonist

I stumbled upon one volume of the "Wingfield" Saga in a small local bookshop in Muskoka Canada while on vacation a few years ago. It's endearing humor tickled my funny bone and I searched for other volumes, to no avail. Recently, a TV series based on the "Wingfield " books has been shown on our local Public TV station, and I again searched for the rest of the volumes on Amazon. Eureka! I hit the mother lode in this expanded version , "Wingfield's World".

The dream of a big-city business man chucking all the problems of just such a harried life, for small town farm living appeals to this city-dweller with dreams of a slower paced country life. The humor arises from Walt Wingfield's romanticized ideas of farming- old style, and the realty he comes up against in a modern day farming community where 20th century devices have replaced the 19th century ones Wlat Wingfield envisioned when he began his journey. The characters of the farming community are quirky, warm and endearing, as they gently try to point out to Wingfield that there are easier ways of farming. Relationships inevitably develop and I came to look forward to settling in with another chapter of life in Walt Wingfied's world. A great vacation read!
