Abstract:

"Widely regarded as one of the most literate states in the nation, Minnesota has a distinguished literary history. From Sinclair Lewis to Louise Erdrich, and from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Charles Baxter, the North Star State has produced any number of outstanding writers." "As the state marks its sesquicentennial in 2008, Fiction on a Stick presents a fresh and invigorating portrait in prose. This anthology suggests what residents of the state have known for some time: Minnesota has changed enormously since 1858. The population has grown particularly quickly in the burgeoning suburbs that ring the cities. Family farms have given way to industrialized agribusiness. And several waves of immigration have left the state far more diverse than the nation's image of it would suggest. This and far more is reflected in the contents."--Jacket.
