Mid-month Short Social: "Chip Off the Old Block" by Wallace Stegner

Here's what Mike said about it:

"It was published originally in the Virginia Quarterly Review in 1942, and was incorporated as a chapter in Stegner's masterpiece novel, The Big Rock Candy Mountain. 

The story runs about 6200 words.
