Widely regarded as one of the most progressive and educated states in the nation, Minnesota boasts a rich literary tradition. Writers from Sinclair Lewis and F. Scott Fitzgerald to Louise Edrich and Garrison Keillor have called it home. Like the rest of America, Minnesota has seen ermous changes over the century and a half since its founding. Population has skyrocketed, particularly into the suburbs ringing the city. Family farms have yielded to agribusiness, and waves of immigrants have given it a new, more diverse identity. Selected for both literary merit and to reflect the state's increasing changes, this anthology presents a literary mosaic of Minnesota at the outset of a new century. With writings by and about an extraordinarily wide range of voices and characters, including powerful work by Sarah Stonich and Eireann Lorsung, Fiction on a Stick is an essential collection for fans of the North Star State, regional fiction, and serious literature.
