"Greetings from Duluth: Essays on Destruction"just released!
Join B.J. Hollars as he takes readers on a whirlwind tour of destruction: from Fort Wayne’s almost-obliteration at the hands of Adolf Hitler, to Tuscaloosa’s 2011 tornado, and finally, to a triple lynching that occurred in Duluth in the summer of 1920. Spanning nearly a continent and a century, Hollars re-reports the details of these destructions, uncovering new facts and new perspectives in the swirl of what little remains.
Relying on equal parts lyricism, experimental forms, and personal experience, Hollars’ “Greetings From Duluth” explores our complicated relationship with the places we call home.
