From the TALK series, On the Lighter Side
Discussion Leader: Rosemary Kolich

Flagg takes us to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where we meet Bobby Smith, a 10-year-old living an idyllic postwar boyhood; his mother, Neighbor Dorothy, broadcasts her Midwest housewife's radio show; and later on, Tot Whooten, a very incompetent hairdresser; mortician Cecil Figgs; Hamm Sparks, the tractor salesman turned politician and many, many others.
