Synopses & Reviews
"Cunninghams short book is a haunting, beautiful piece of work. . . . A magnificent work of art." —The Washington Post"Easily read on a plane-and-ferry journey from here to the sandy, tide-washed tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Lands End is that most perfect of companions: slender, eloquent, enriching, and fun. . . . A casually lovely ode to Provincetown." —The Minneapolis Star Tribune"Cunningham rambles through Provincetown, gracefully exploring the unusual geography, contrasting seasons, long history, and rich stew of gay and straight, Yankee and Portuguese, old-timer and ‘washashore that flavors Cape Cods outermost town. . . . Chock-full of luminous descriptions . . . . Hes hip to its studied theatricality, ever-encroaching gentrification and physical fragility, and he can joke about its foibles and mourn its losses with equal aplomb." —Chicago Tribune"A homage to the ‘city of sand. . . Filled with finely crafted sentences and poetic images that capture with equal clarity the mundanities of the A&P and Provincetowns magical shadows and light . . . Highly evocative and honest. It takes you there." —The Boston Globe
