Robert Inman. Captain Saturday. Boston: Little, Brown, 2002.

Captain Saturday is the story of Will Baggett, a popular television weatherman in Raleigh, whose life begins to crumble when in a short span of time he loses his job, his wife leaves him, and he’s arrested for a crime he didn’t commit. Baggett escapes from his sophisticated life in the Triangle to visit family in rural Brunswick County where he begins his recovery by delving into his past. The book provides an excellent portrait of life in contemporary Raleigh, commenting on the city’s struggles with development and the often contentious relationship between new arrivals and the denizens of “old Raleigh.”
