Allan Gurganus' latest, Local Souls, takes his readers back to Falls, North Carolina. A small town that sits on the banks of the black water running, the River Lithium. This venture into town is told in three novellas... about a couple seeking their child given up at birth, about a teen girl leaving to teach in Africa, and about the recently retired physician, Dr. Roper.
