A Guide to Fiction Set in Vermont
by Ann McKinstry Micou

Vermont fiction has always been notable for what Ann McKinstry Micou calls
"a profound sense of place." Comprehensive, trenchant, and appreciative,
A Guide to Fiction Set in Vermont is a first-rate overview of the fiction,
past and present, inspired by the Green Mountain State.
— Howard Frank Mosher, author of A Stranger in the Kingdom
and Waiting for Teddy Williams

  •  An author bibliography and multiple appendixes and indexes make the guide an ideal tool for those seeking to learn about Vermont through the lens of literature.

[This guide is] nothing short of amazing. . . . It’s a reference book that any devotee of Vermont literature will want to use — and  book with a lot of Vermont soul as well.

Ann Micou has produced a gem of a book. This volume belongs on the bookshelves of teachers, book lovers, and libraries alike.
