Musings on This Jealous Earth, or: Why I <3 the Midwest (via The Lit Pub)

I recently wrote a piece for The Lit Pub where I gave a non-review review of This Jealous Earth, discussed the mission of MG Press and talked about how and why the Midwest has come to mean so much to me:

“The Midwest is dirty (in parts), dingy, full of hardworking folks — blue-collared, if you will — and I think the history here, the historical devotion to farms and factories, the nitty gritty, our mostly-congenial attitude (with a slight bit of snark), has produced very distinct literature . . . literature that, I believe more than any other region, holds a mirror up to us.”
