Description - In the Middle of the Middle West by
The 42 essays in this collection take their inspiration from the Midwest-not just from its physical terrain but from its emotional terrain as well. They come from writers of diverse backgrounds: poets, novelists, filmmakers, and journalists; some who came and stayed, some who came and left, and some who were born and raised in this place. The essays revolve generally around issues of conflict between place and identity, and the theme of diversity - be it religious, sexual, racial, artistic, cultural, occupational, or geographical - runs throughout.
