Reviews

"Schubart's full-hearted and compassionate evocation of this Vermont is by turns poignant, funny and savory. The stories give readers a good excuse to stay up too late to discover how Wyvis will circumvent the new Vermont prohibition on having more than three junk cars in your yard or how Charlie is going to get Edgar to pay him for his new chimney. Schubart's thoroughly enjoyable short story collection is as finely etched as the frost crystals on your winter window. Amusez-vous bien!" - Dick Drysdale

"Bill Schubart's Vermont stories of a mostly-forgotten time and place are fresh, authentic, funny in places and sad in others. He knows his corner of the Green Mountains inside out and writes with honesty and grace about its people." - Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances, Mary Blythe, and On Kingdom Mountain

"Bill Schubart's stories are Vermont's answer to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales: larger than life, triumphantly over-the-top, by turns erudite and savagely, raucously funny. No good soul, no matter how low on the social ladder, is beneath Schubart's fond notice; no lout, no matter how highly placed, escapes his lacerating wit. People drink in these stories, folks. They drink, and occasionally they damage their homes and cars and boots and lifelong local reputations as a result. But in Schubart's universe, such things happen, and such people remain loved. Laughed at certainly, but loved just the same." -- Philip Baruth, author of The X President

"These are fast becoming some of my favorite stories. Bill Schubart captures something of Vermont that many of us barely remember, and others may never experience. Each of The Lamoille Stories is a unique experience--lovingly told, with insight, pathos, and especially humor. You'll read them again and again." -- Joseph A. Citro, author of Passing Strange
