Minnesota Memoirs

(2012)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Mesmerizing: In 17 riveting stories set in the author's native Minnesota, Duff Brenna's edgy tales journey from the mid-19th century to our current 21st century. While capturing the history centered in and around the cities of Medicine Lake, Golden Valley, Anoka, Minneapolis and Mankato, Minnesota Memoirs unfurl a series of unique narratives revealing a transfiguring perception of what it means to be alive in a world that never explains its quiet indifference to all things human. Called "a spectacular talent at crafting complex, believable characters" (Wall Street Journal), "a honed intelligence, unfaltering, unflinching, piercing" (New York Times) and "a master at capturing the helplessness of humans ... with tough written all over them" (Los Angeles Times), Brenna's insights into human nature show us who we are as a species and what we are capable of - our capacities for love and hate, intense desire, sanity, insanity, magnanimity, generosity of spirit and, above all, compassion.
