Mary Relindes Ellis - The Bohemian Flats

In her latest work, The Bohemian Flats, Mary Ellis’s rich gift for imagining carries us from the bourgeois world of fin de siècle Germany to a vibrant immigrant enclave in the heart of the Midwest and to the killing fields of World War I. The Bohemian Flats conjures both the sweep of irresistible history and the intimate reality of a man, and a family, caught up in it.
