Columnist Chachra takes a good, honest look at going home again in this winning collection of essays from Blackburg, Va., first published in The Roanoke Times between 2002 and '04. This is book is a compendium of essays about Chachra growing up in and returning to Blacksburg after having left. Chachra's own rediscovery of her hometown, which she spent "a lifetime plotting to leave" is a recurring theme.
