Other Electricities, Ander Monson
Through a gestalt of sketches, short stories, lists, indices, and radio schematics, Monson presents a world where weather, radio waves, and electricity are influential characters in themselves, affecting an entire community held together by memories of those they have lost.
Ander Monson is the author of four published books (Neck Deep and Other Predicaments, Other Electricities, Vacationland, andVanishing Point). He is the editor DIAGRAM Magazine and the New Michigan Press. Though he lives in Tucson where he teaches at the University of Arizona, his heart still resides thirty hours northeast by car.
