About this product
- DescriptionThe place is the middle border, the Midwest borderland remembered in the writings of Hamlin Garland. Richard Quinney's autobiographical essays begin with his birth and early years on the family farm in southern Wisconsin, continue through a lifetime of movement away from the farm, and document a return to the farm. Along the way, there are the tales of the years of living and writing in a prairie town across the border. In the most recent telling, Quinney is still moving between town and country. But it is always to the farm on the middle border that he returns. Autobiographical reflection allows the narrator to move in time and space across a geographical landscape. The impulse to write autobiographically is to kw the present and, at the same time, to apprehend what is yet to be. Lives are saved and renewed in the telling of these tales. Such is the good fortune of the storyteller.
- Author BiographyRichard Quinney is the author of several books that combine autobiographical writing with photography, including Journey to a Far Place, For the Time Being, Borderland, Once Again the Wonder, Where Yet the Sweet Birds Sing, and Of Time and Place. His other books are in the academic field of sociology. He and his wife live in Madison, Wisconsin and on the family farm in Walworth County in southern Wisconsin.
