Marlais Brand—The Hungry Coast: Fables from the North Shore of Minnesota

Discover a fresh voice in regional fiction: Marlais Brand's bewitching tales are set on Minnesota's own fabled and historic North Shore. This collection of short stories takes the reader for a hair-raising ride along a rocky stretch of the imagination. Stops along Marlais' route include fear, love, history, death and relentless hunger.

Says Joyce Reiser Kornblatt, author of The Reason for Wings and White Water: "In the transporting fables of The Hungry Coast, Marlais Olmstead Brand initiates us into a world in which the physical is shot through with radiance, and the psychological opens into revelation. Grounded in place, these stories open into the region of myth. This is a wonderful collection, memorable and deeply moving."
