SummaryAdd a Summary
Mink River is an imaginary small town on the Oregon coast with some poetic characters. There is a plot, but most of the salty joy from reading this comes from getting to know eccentric characters. If you have been a fan of some of Ken Kesey's depictions of coastal Oregonians, you will recognize some echoes in this village. The story unfolds with a bit of magic realism, and a lot of humor. Drink it in - like you would the view of an ocean vista in a rainstorm.
