The Snappy Cola Clock
and Other Colby County Stories


Seventeen stories set in Colby County, Illinois and part of the same universe that includes Trombone Answers, The Rocheville Devil, and Love and Corn and Whatnot. Who's playing the mournful flute in Pinefield Cemetery at every new moon? How are the same kids winning so many bingo games at the Colby City Fish Fry? Why is Bruce Medlock so obsessed with the old Snappy Cola clock at the Sweetpea Cafe? Told in Donovan's smooth and dry narrative style, these stories reflect smalltown life at its warmest, strangest, funniest, and most unexpected.
