“Like the best American writers, Laird Hunt is recasting the American song, lyrically and philosophically.”

Lynne Tillman

Indiana, Indiana

A beautiful and surreal tale of love and loss in America’s heartland, Indiana, Indiana is the story of one simple man’s life told through the echoes of his memories and the correspondence between him and his wife. Written in a masterful elegiac style reminiscent of Faulkner and Steinbeck, this poignant novel is a moonlit American saga firmly grounded in an Indiana landscape populated by drifters, ministers, sheriffs, and kin-a terrain dominated by big sky and charged with the haunting music of rust-ruined tools and heartbreaking twists of fate.
