This collection brings together the best of Alan Lindy’s “The Prairie Spy” columns, which he has been writing for more than 25 years. The columns bring colorful characters to life and draw upon his life experiences in New York Mills, Minnesota, ranging from hilarious dialogs with talking appliances to poignant tales of his time in Vietnam. With his unique Midwestern style, Lindy’s vision has been described as the perfect blend of Alfred Hitchcock and Garrison Keillor.
