Townships by Michael Martone( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 331 libraries worldwide
"It would not seem so important for southern writers to justify writing about the South--that region is defined. Midwestern writers, however, must first define their region, inhabit it, so that writing about it through fiction and poetry will become as natural as it is for writers in other necks of the national world." "Townships seeks to prepare the ground for that work, using the very ground itself as a starting place. Each contributor has written about his or her specific township of childhood or a bordered region that defined a first notion of place in the world. Complementing this diversity in writer and subject are Raymond Bial's striking and evocative photographs, a visual essay that echoes the sensibility of the township with grace and precision."--[book jacket]
