In the Village


authored by Anthony Bailey

When it was first published in 1971, “In the Village” infuriated some readers, amused others, and engaged many more. In the five decades since, Anthony Bailey’s portrait of a small New England town has achieved a quiet fame. Readers of this new edition will find that it has also retained its freshness and sharpness of vision. In a world that seems increasingly dominated by massive corporations and blundering states, this book celebrates a smaller, more tangible unit of human society: the village.
