Good Grief; Ellen Stimson

Good Grief: Life in a Tiny Vermont Village Starring One Dead Guy, Some Naked People, and Quite the Little House FireGood Grief: Life in a Tiny Vermont Village Starring One Dead Guy, Some Naked People, and Quite the Little House Fire by Ellen Stimson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ms. Stimson is an engaging author, which probably accounts for why this book was published. Unlike most books about death/coping with death, this has no deep lessons, no deep insights. Instead we have humor, quirky people and events, and a death that, while it does effect her family, doesn't seem to do so so deeply that she can't write about it lightly. I did find her thoughts about Vermont and Vermonters to be reasonably accurate (speaking as a flatlander with family in the NEK).
