I absolutely loved “The Carousel”. It’s the tale of a lost women, literally, figuratively, emotionally, physically, who accidentally finds a dismembered carousel in a small town junk yard, and in saving the carousel not only saves herself but the small town community she was just passing through.
Glorious characters, good, bad and ugly, in depth relationships new and old, a plethora of interesting and absorbing personalities and an almost simplistic plot for them to revolve around. It is a triumph of human observation set in a tiny community of people, people who had lost themselves and each other. Watching the ebb and flow of rediscovery is, quite simply, joyful.
