Scoop: Notes from a Small Ice Cream Shop – Jeff Miller

“Miller’s book is a gentle, affectionate and often-funny month-by-month memoir of 2005, the first year he and his partner Dean Cooper lived in Hayward.”
–  St. Paul Pioneer Press

“Miller’s writing style blends the best of Calvin Trillin’s travelogues and Bill Bryson’s wit. His gift for describing detail brings the town and its history to life. . . Jeff Miller’s charming story gives us hope that the elusive American Dream is alive and well, available to any kindhearted soul brave enough to take a chance and step into the unknown.”
–  Foreword Reviews

“…destined to be the summer read for Hayward townies and summer folk, as well as anyone who’s dreamed of making a daring life change…”
–  Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Hayward and its cast of characters come to life in ‘Scoop’.”
