Though he wasn't born here and didn't spend all his life here, Amherst MA is part of his past. Mostly, we are familiar with his father, who was the local hot-air balloon enthusiast - and with his brother Judd, who is a judge - but, I think most locals like to claim Thad Carhart as our own too - along with Emily Dickinson and many other authors.

I couldn't find the date of this interview, but he was staying with his family in Amherst at the time (after that book came out).


Thankyou so much, Nancy - very interesting!

I loved The Piano Shop on the Left Bank - so relaxing. Enjoy your pleasure reading! I must be honest - I missed a couple of CBG discussions for that very reason - just not enough time for reading what struck my fancy. Of course, it was self-induced, but it was a nice break. I was relieved to see you postpone the discussion a week this month. I forgot to take the Ford book on vacation, so now I have time to read it. :)
