Love Letters to Michigan Cover

"Love Letters to Michigan is an elegy to place--a landscape dotted with dive bars, chain stores, themed restaurants and old age homes."
Karen Brown, author of The Longings of Wayward Girls


"This homage to the Great Lakes State and its residents is a remarkable debut that establishes Christine Lasek as a writer to watch."
Rita Ciresi, author of Sometimes I Dream in Italian


"These patient, heartfelt stories of Midwestern life ... glow with an affecting and very human stoicism; their quiet desperation matched by a quiet decency amounting to hope."
Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl
