The Extraordinary Pupfish of Calaveras County

The Extraordinary Pupfish of Calaveras County by Joel Schwartz presents the drama of a divisive, local, political issue, as told from the perspectives of its two main protagonists, each in alternating chapters. The writing is delightfully insightful and clever, revealing the nature and roots of misunderstanding when economic, social, and personal values are threatened. I particularly enjoyed the portrayal of both vulnerability and humanity as each character attempts to influence the outcome of events but is forced to work with the other.
