Paul Revere’s is a series of Adler-influenced vignettes including the communal rumors, group games, mistaken memories, and twice- or thrice-told tales that can accumulate in a small Midwestern town.

“Everyone shares a therapist. This means, it seems, that we are obligated to manipulate stories when discussing one or another of the people the therapist also sees, most of whom happen to be the very people we wish to speak about, the very people who are making us ill.”

Pagel
