BOOK TALK: How do you know when an author wrote his own jacket copy? How about when the first paragraph comes out like so:

With Dispatches from the Muckdog Gazette, Bill Kauffman joins the American chorus of small-town literary voices with a style both dulcet and pungent. Think of a thornier Thornton Wilder, Garrison Keillor by way of Archie Bunker, Mark Twain rampaging in a world gone Wal-Mart. Without the slightest nod to etiquette, decorum, or political correctness, Kauffman uses the residents of his beloved but beleaguered town of Batavia, New York, to assess the endangered state of small-town life in these big city times.
