The Berkshires is a bubble of liberal wealth serviced by a frowning Trumpian white lower middle and working class and an immigrant community of smiling ironists on the way up.

The vibe: nostalgia. Dylan, John Prine, The Dead, Mississippi John Hurt and mellow Lou Reed, introduced by voices with the soft tones of easy listening. I've heard Clapton playing with John Mayall more this summer than any year since 1975, and I inherited my sister's copy.
