Book of the week

Yes, there really is a place called Big Stone Gap, Va. And yes, Elizabeth Taylor and then-husband U.S. Sen. John Warner did visit the tiny hamlet nestled in the Cumberland Mountains on a campaign trip in 1978. Everything else in this delightfully quirky novel, however, springs from the imagination of first-time author Trigiani, a television writer and producer (The Cosby Show) and documentary filmmaker. And what an imagination she has.
