Every city should have a Jack Neely. This book consists of 1 to 3 page vignettes of local, often offbeat history of Knoxville, Tennessee. Most were originally published in MetroPulse, the town's alternative newspaper. (For a sample of his work, his latest column can usually be found on the newspaper's web site.)
