The past and the present merge in the fictional town of Pont Bonita in WEST OF HERE by Jonathan Evison (Algonquin, $24.95). The novel tells two parallel stories set about a century apart, one the formation of this town as a thriving community and the other its present day slide into irrelevance. Compelling characters from both periods must decide how their lives will develop and evolve as the place they call home changes around them. Evison has really created two narratives that feed off each other and create a wonderful whole.
