Editorial Reviews

"This is Gasoline Alley at its finest. Once you’ve read this beautifully designed book and seen Moore’s art and stories up close, it will be hard to put down - and you’ll be craving for more." —Michael Taube, The Washington Times“Dick Moores has a uniquely compassionate, kindly view of human relationships and he is able to satirize the small meannesses and foolishnesses of daily life without in any way losing the whimsy and good humor that pervade his vision of a contemporary American small town. There are very few people who can write as gracefully as Dick.”  —Garry Trudeau
