July 2014: Delphine Bedient’s Home State: Life in Nebraska

home state cover

“I spent the first eighteen years of my life living in Nebraska.  After leaving the state and moving to the west coast, I found that the knowledge my new friends and peers had of my home state was largely comprised of a few well-worn stereotypes.  Most of them could not have pointed to it on a map.

Home State: Life in Nebraska is my long-overdue reaction to this.  In a series of semi-fictional vignettes I have depicted the Nebraska that I knew, and my upbringing within its borders.  Chronicling both the special and the mundane, this work attempts an honest portrait of the place. “
