“Tales From Thurmons Corners” is fictional but I think much of it is based on Region’s Illinois childhood and adolescence. “TFTC” is a vividly descriptive story, centered around a man named David Lang whose journey back to his hometown jars treasured physical and spiritual memories of cornstalks, gravel roads, railroad trains, movie screens, Lucky Strikes, friendships, families, first beers and first loves. Thurman’s Corners is located in the midwest but the story could have taken place almost anywhere in the middle two thirds of the United States.
For those (like me) who grew up in suburban or rural America in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s, reading “Thurmons Corners” packs an especially powerful, emotional punch. Once I opened it I couldn’t put it down.
