About this item
Set within the resilient Great Plains, these stories are marked by the region's people, landscape, and the distinctive way it is both regressive in its politics yet also stumbling toward something better. While not all stories are explicitly set in Oklahoma, the state is almost a characterneither protagonist nor antagonistbut instead the weird next-door-neighbor you're perhaps too ashamed of to take anywhere. Who is the embarrassing oneyou or Oklahoma?
