Description

These powerful stories limn the complexities and dilemmas of life in Kansas, a state at the center of the center of America, as a billboard in one story announces Andrew Malan Milward explores the less visible aspects of the Kansas experience where its agrarian past comes into conflict with the harsh present reality of drugs, fundamentalism, and corporatism, relegating its agrarian identity to museums and amusement parks.
