Midcentury Boy: My Suburban Childhood: From Ike to the BeatlesLetters from Michiana
Reflections Along Lake Michigan's Southern Shore

In this collection of essays, David Hoppe reflects on his everyday exper- ience of life in Michiana, the dunes country on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Spanning the pandemic, these letters are an intimate meditation on community, peoples' relationship with the natural world and the pressures of economic and social development.

Letters from Michiana is about what it means to live in a beautiful place.

I am a writer and cultural strategist.

"You surely know what the great sportswriter Red Smith said about writing, that it was easy, that all you did was open a vein and bleed. You bleed real good, and your heart is where the blood comes from. If you ever wonder what in hell you think you're doing with your life, let me remind you that you are telling people as reasonable and humane as yourself what they desperately need to hear, that others feel as they do." -- Kurt Vonnegut
