Nationally celebrated columnist Sean Kirst offers a deeply moving collection of stories about the struggles and triumphs of the everyday men and women who define Syracuse.

"Kirst not only shares with readers his love and passion for the people, places, and voices of his hometown, but captures the essence of what it is to be a community."—Jason Emerson, author of Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln

"Kirst demonstrates an extraordinary connection with his readers and subjects. How wonderful it would be for any community to have such an artful chronicler of its poignant moments."—Janice Bullard Pieterse, author of Our Work Is But Begun: A History of the University of Rochester, 1850–2005
