Enjoyable tale of growing up in small town Michigan
, June 5, 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Situation in Flushing (Great Lakes Books Series) (Hardcover)
This book was published in the 1960s and was a big event in my family since it featured a few pages that described my grandfather, who had lived in Flushing at the time of the story. My family was very distressed as it described my grandfather in a somewhat unflattering light, or at least in one that was inconsistent with family consensus. I am in posession of copies of some correspondence between my father, my aunt, and the author. The book sat in my parents' house in Imlay City until the time of my mother's death in the mid-1990s. The book came into my posession at that time and I read it shortly thereafter. I loved the story, the local flavor, the images of a small town Michigan that I had not experienced but had been given hints of all of my life. I don't know if the characterization of my grandfather was correct, and I frankly do not care. This was a great experience and I am sorry that Eddie Love didn't right more about growing up in Flushing
