In "Dessert First," you’ll find seventy-seven glimpses of Wisconsin life, to be read in any order. This book has your name on it if you like short true stories – if you laugh at everyday comedy – if you’ve lived through highs and lows – and if you believe good trumps evil. In these pages you’ll travel from city streets to haylofts. You’ll encounter mice wearing clothes, a bad guy stopped by a smile, a St. Francis in need of recapitation, and two old ladies whose racy conversation leads them to calamity. You’ll find leaves to kick, spring peepers, chickens, fruit flies, deer, drought, and frost. There are earthly delights like a blue Fiestaware dish – and bummers like walking to the gym shower wearing socks. "Dessert First" is Wisconsin life transcribed through the pen of veteran journalist Gail Grenier. Her eyes are open and she sees the world as many of us see it. She describes that vision with clarity, compassion, and humor. Grenier grew up in Wisconsin, which means that through weather, through rearing, and through schooling, she grew up hardy – and that helped her when, at twenty-seven years old, she lost her parents and younger brother in a car accident. Those deaths taught her to live. From more than three decades of writing, a message comes through: Life is short and often hard – but it’s full of desserts. Grenier shares those desserts – tastier than Wisconsin frozen custard.
