Tom Dunlop: Reflections on Martha's Vineyard
William A. Caldwell was already a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his work as editor of a New Jersey newspaper when he moved to the Martha's Vineyard in 1972. For the next 12 years, he wrote a column for the Vineyard Gazette called Reflections of That Man Friday. Reflections on Martha's Vineyard, edited by Tom Dunlop, is a collection of those brilliant essays. Whether funny or critical, angry or compassionate, they are irrefutably logical but often philosophically surprising. Tom will present some of the essays from the collection.
