Venice on the Susquehanna

Professor Emeritus, Michael Lee Barton, Ph.D., under the guise of "Feeney Tungsten," takes us on a tongue-in-cheek tour of the Shipoke neighborhood of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, affectionately referred to as Shitepoke. Feeney, ever the curious ethnographer and social scientist, surveys the neighborhood and all of its human dimensions. What results is a hilarious exposé of a beloved section of the Keystone State's capital akin to the works of Mark Twain and Garrison Keillor.

What Others Are Saying:

A fine work by a very smart man--maybe too smart for his own good--about a river town. You know I love river towns, and Feeney Tungsten does a marvelous job of capturing the oddities of human nature in this particular haven on the east bank of the Susquehanna. As I always said, "The best place for a smart man in a river town is on the opposite shore." Well, I didn't actually say that, though I suppose I just did. Well, you know what I mean. Enjoy! But, don't read too much into it, unless you do! -- Mark Twain from Heaven
