News from the Village coverby David Mason ’78, CC professor of English

During his 20s, Mason found himself living with his wife in a village in southern Greece. Their first encounter with the country would prove an unrecoverable dream of magic, but through decades of steadfast affection, Mason comes to a deeper understanding of what it means to be a citizen of one’s own country and a citizen of the world. Ultimately, Mason’s memoir is about what we can hold and what slips away.
