Here On Old Route 7

(1997)
A collection of stories by

 
Route 7 is not a road that easily accepts strangers. Even the title story is told through five separate viewpoints, reflecting the ways that individuals are isolated and isolate themselves. Resistant to change, the natives who live along Route 7 are quick to point out the shortcomings of more recent arrivals. "Devil's Fiddle" is the hilarious account of the town bad boys' prank gone awry when the old woman they thought to scare seductively turns the tables on them. A satisfying combination of dark themes and humorous situations, Connor's collection of stories is a terrific debut that, in its truths, reaches more towns than just those in this New England setting.
