Joseph Conforti’s Hidden Places belongs on any bookshelf devoted to Maine or New England studies. A detailed guide to a thought-provoking selection of Maine’s place-based fiction, it is not only a valuable resource for general readers seeking to learn more but an excellent reference volume for librarians working on collection development or advice for readers, teachers creating syllabi, and critics searching for information and inspiration.— New England Quarterly
