Where is “Collins Heights?”
The central physical setting in A Favor Returned is the fictional town of Collins Heights. Can anyone guess the name of actual town in South Jersey that is the model for Collins Heights? It shouldn’t require much imagination! By the way, the author’s sample copies are in transit as this is written.
The next blog on the subject of A Favor Returned will provide the answer as well as another test of memory for those who lived in that model town during the forties and fifties.
