Having recently read Nowhere Else on Earth and having loved it, I went in search of other Josephine Humphries works for a further sampling of her craft. I was not disappointed in next reading The Fireman's Fair, and I would recommend it to lovers of good, honest, unpretentious character and plot. The protagonist is someone I know, I'm sure of it. We all know him. He's our lovesick brother or cousin, a friend we knew in college who couldn't grow up, a guy down the street we once were friends with who never quite found his way. I'm so glad to have discovered Josephine Humphries. I hope others in search of remarkable fiction will discover her as well.
