"As a Fake News anchor, I can say with some authority that Wigfield is a truly fine work of fraudulent journalism, " Tina Fey, co-anchor, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, back DJ quote. A satirical look at a small town on the verge of extinction.
I recommend this book to anyone who was a fan of "Strangers With Candy". In this book you will find the story of a town that isn't really a town, full of squaters fighting the government for their right to stay put on some land that they claimed to be Wigfield.
Once again Amy Sedaris is magically turned into whatever character she is protraying for the camera. And if you live in small town America you will find the characters relatable. After all who doesn't know the teenage punk working at the fastfood joint who's only goal in life is have his heavy metal band make it big some day?
Read this book! You won't be sorry that you did.
