Bluffton: My Summers with Buster Keaton - Matt Phelan

In 1908, in Muskegon, Michigan, Henry meets a summering troupe of vaudeville performers, specifically "Buster" Keaton, the eventual comic star of the silent film era. I liked an earlier work of Phelan's, The Storm in the Barn, which--AGAIN--I swear I wrote a review for, but had similar problems in that, while the art is lovely (watercolors!), it is sparse, as is the writing, which could use some more details. This last part is especially true as, sorry, I actually know nothing of vaudeville and have never even seen a Buster Keaton film, despite all the pressure to do so from The History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps podcasts I've been listening to. Still, a very fine comic about the friendship of some boys, ideas/cliches about the grass always being greener, and staying true to yourself in order to find yourself.
