Description

  • Great product!
  • The New York Times bestselling memoir about growing up in small-town Indiana, from the author of The Solace of Leaving
    Early.

    When Haven Kimmel was born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was a sleepy little hamlet of three hundred people. Nicknamed
    "Zippy" for the way she would bolt around the house, this small girl was possessed of big eyes and even bigger ears.
    In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in
    the amber of the innocent postwar period–people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard
    animals in their backyards.

    Laced with fine storytelling, sharp wit, dead-on observations, and moments of sheer joy, Haven Kimmel's
    straight-shooting portrait of her childhood gives us a heroine who is wonderfully sweet and sly as she navigates the
    quirky adult world that surrounds Zippy.
