David Hoppe has a new book.
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.
Here's what other writers say:
"David Hoppe's Letters from Michiana captures life along the beautiful scoop of Lake Michigan, a kind of secret world..."
"A master of the short essay...provocative and infomative..."
"Wise and witty..."
"Hoppe's mastery of his sense of place will inspire readers to appreciate their own..."

"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
