Publisher's Summary

Akin to Thomas Hardy stories of the Dorset countryside - timely to his place and ours - Thomas Morgan's Indiana stories synchronize a sense of country place apposite and applicable to our time.... 

"Tom Morgan displays venerable literary skills; attentiveness to detail, alertness to context, and a hunger for larger meaning." 

"The literary equivalent of preternatural bat-like sonar that senses how to address readers in a voice possessing both immediacy and retrospective wisdom."

"Astonishingly well-read, he structures his reminiscences and meditations as a series of vignettes that add up to taut scenes from a Midwesterner's life in the mid-20th and early 21st centuries - some occurring in Europe, Mexico, and California."

Critic Reviews

"The job of Morgan's writing is not to act as a reflecting mirror of his experience, but as a lens through which we catch views of an alternately baffling, exasperating and mesmerizing search for some fixity by which to oppose the chaos of daily living. What remains instead is the spiritually intense presence of the author. Morgan has become the kind of character you think about long after you finish this book." (Alan M. Wald: Chandler Davis professor of literature, University of Michigan. Author of Exiles from a Future Time, Trinity of Passion, and American Night

"Rare is the writing that defies categorization - rarer still when it presses listeners to reconsider nearly every way they are led by the shifting sway of media to believe is politically correct and incorrect. Tom Morgan shoots through clichés and quick sound bites about liberal and conservative, left and right, and offers instead a fresh, honest, and provocative account of a life that has turned both socialist commitments and animal husbandry into a daily practice of caring." (John Maraldo, professor of philosophy, emeritus, University of North Florida)

Great Man, Great Book, Great Listen

My first half hour listen was fantastic. Drink a cup of coffee before you listen as Mr. Morgan has great insight to critical thinking.
