Description - Indiana Winter by Susan S. Neville

Neville's observations on inner and outer worlds deserve a large readership." -Studies in Short FictionBlending fictional and reportorial technique, Ms. Neville unwinds a tapestry of the Indiana seasons... in scene after remarkable scene she succeeds in disturbing and undermining one's calm.... moving... " -Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times... shrewedly perceptive studies of the poetics of place... Neville pierces the heart of this `heart of the country,' unloosing disquieting images and poignant scenes that cling to your memory."-Belles LettresIf there is darkness in this vision there is also compassion, a lucid and inclusive civility born of remembering how fragile are the houses of our lives." -Arts IndianaA collection of essays, works of fiction and blends of those two genres, Indiana Winter is a poetic and disturbing interpretation of phenomena familiar to most of Neville's fellow Hoosiers-so familiar, in fact, that we may not really see them.... As a plunge into the blackness and glare of the examined life, Indiana Winter is a testament to courage." -Dan Carpenter, Indianapolis StarThese stories and essays are filled with great emotion and affection for the people and the land we've come to know as the Hoosier state." -Minneapolis Star Tribune... a book that is firmly and honestly rooted in region, yet finds in its careful and lyrical examination of Indiana's people and places truths that move the prose pieces away from simple regionalism." -Sycamore ReviewA sensitive writer's imaginative essay-stories about spiritual boundaries and values in the state of Indiana and everywhere.
