My Life and Adventures

(2002)
A novel by

 
Its the late 1960s, when troubled ex-professor Mark Noon claims an odd bequest: he moves to a dilapidated house in rustic Bible Hill, Vermont. Noon recounts how he gets to know and comes to love the township, its natural history, its lore, its ingrown and haunted denizensand one woman in particular, who shares his life for a time. Noons story is interwoven with entries from the diary of Claude Littlejohn, the houses previous owner, along with the mysterious backstory of Noons misadventures in a Latin American country, which led to his self-imposed exile from the world.eaders of Thoreau, Emerson, Hawthorne, Poe, and Washington Irving will find a feast in this novel, which balances the God-haunted, transcendental New England of the 19th century against the dope and llama farms, survivalists, and leaf-peepers of our day.
