This affectionate memoir is part sociology and part "Alice in Wonderland". For Ms. Daley, the rabbit hole was in Vermont, where she raised her family, and Wonderland was San Francisco, where she taught college-level journalism. This is a memorable journey for all who embark upon it. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
