Review: If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name



If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name by Heather Lende

This is part memoir, part travelogue of Lende's life and work in Haines, Alaska, a small and secluded fishing village.

I was absolutely taken in my Lende's descriptions of Alaska and small town life, and her descriptions of the townspeople - many of whom she gets to know due to her job as the obituary writer.

In turns funny, sad, introspective and touching, I found this a great memoir to pick up and put down, reading chapters in stages so to fully absorb the Alaskan experience. Recommended!
