Once you find yourself in Oysterback, you may never want to leave. Nothing beats Desiree Grinch's corn soup at the Blue Crab Tavern. There's never a wait at The Curl Up 'N Dye Salon de Beaute. In season, you can buy your produce (as you pay your respects) at Dreedle's Funeral Parlor. There's bingo every Tuesday at the V.F.D. The Mosquito Festival is next week. And when the moon hangs over Widgeon Marsh as full and yellow as one of Miss Nettie's oyster fritters, you'll know you're in a place like no other.

Since 1988, readers of the Baltimore Sun have delighted in regular visits to Oysterback -- Helen Chappell's mythical town on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Chappell's stories capture the unique charm of rural life on the Shore, and her memorable characters typify the folksy strength and eccentricity of the natives. "In Oysterback," as the town's Captain Saloman observes, "we have characters we haven't even used yet."


Helen Chappell has conjured Oysterback and its denizens for five years on the Op-Ed page of the Sun. Now she's collected her dispatches in the delightful Oysterback Tales. Singly, any of the Oysterback Tales is a good, if brief read.

Charming! Captures the dialogue and doings of a fictitious small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore. But if it's fiction, why does it ring so true? Like Lake Wobegon, the author has captured the power of the small things of everyday life we all recognize and identify with. Deserves a wide reading. I bought copies for friends as gifts.

I already had my own copy of the book. I ordered two more as Christmas presents.

Good read.

One of my all time favorite Chesapeake Bay authors! The Oysterback Tales is a timeless collection featuring the adventures of Ms. Chappell's charming, hilarious, and sometimes even wise cast of eccentric characters living on Maryland's Rural Eastern Shore. A wonderful book that can be read cover to cover, again and again, or picked up and read in brief snippets whenever the mood strikes (I know because I've done both). The Oysterback Tales are not only a great way to introduce newcomers to the magical possibilities of life on the 'Sho, but to reacquaint those of us who already live here with that same magic. A reader can't go wrong with Helen Chappell.

I loved it. The stories about the village of Oysterback are a joy. Any time I drive past Red Toad Road in the future I will think of her delightful stories. I started her second compilation right after finishing this one, and all I can say is that I wish she would come out with more.

I just re-read this book. Each story is like a poem describing the beauty and rouges of Maryland's Eastern Shore. And I feel like I know and love each character from Oysterback. Read it - you'll love it.

Helen Chappell's great genius is in her characters and her sense of magical realism.
