Product Description

Kelly Lake Store & Other Stories dwells in out-of-the-way places - communities and landscapes obscured by poverty and decline - yet it does so with an eagle eye that extends the reader's vision upward and outward to encompass the old problems of the center: power, class, and lineage. Kraus's narrative propels us forward on a cross-country journey through obscure border towns, big cities, fancy parties, and dusty hippie encampments. The essay's three interwoven sections construct a rather monstrous architecture in which a desolate Mexican pueblo cuts a path to the offices of the Guggenheim Foundation.
