Review: And Here: 100 Years of Upper Peninsula Writing, 1917–2017

And Here: 100 Years of Upper Peninsula Writing, 1917–2017
by Ron Riekki
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

And Here is an excellent anthology of of "poems, stories, essays and oddments" by Upper Peninsula connected writers. This collection is arranged chronologically and spans 100 years of writing from 1917 to 2017. While this is an excellent collection regardless of your background, these stories will especially resonate with anyone from Michigan's UP or with a connection to it.

My favorites from this collection were the short stories "What My Father Told Me" by Michael Delp, and "Marquette" by Justin Machnik, and the poem "A Daughter-in-Law Watches the Old Man Hesitate" by Elinor Benedict. The excerpt from the book "Ursula, Under" was especially gripping.
