Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation
Toxic. I never expected that a book about cancer epidemiology would keep me enthralled through more than 500 pages. Dan Fagin writes about toxic pollution and its aftermath in his book, Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation. Fagin knows how to tell a story. Readers come to know many individuals in the course of this book, and Fagin draws us into their lives through his fine writing. The science can be complicated, but Fagin breaks it out in ways that never faltered. Any reader who lives in a neighborhood with a mix of business and residential interests will relate to the community relationships described in this book. Anyone living in an industrial area will be especially interested in learning what happened in this New Jersey community.
