    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    Overall

    Sociology does not make for great or even good literature -- and this is sociology by the numbers. As if written from index cards, the characters of the book are carefully constructed from minute and plentiful place-time details, that approximate authenticity, but fail to engage. What's all the fuss?
