I learned on this trip that America was full of anomalies. Don’t get me wrong, I survived it, loved it and ate too much. But as the fat faded from my belly, the juxtapositions trampolining in my brain just would not rest and I mean would not rest. I was tormented with such questions as ‘why is the mid-west neither in the middle nor the west?’ The great American phenomenon of therapy was needed. Hence ‘Clueless in America’, my self-medication, came into creation.< Less

O my America! My new found land/ My kingdome…/ My Myne of precious stones, My Empirie/ How blest am I in this discovering thee!” The “Myne of precious stones” is how John... More > Donne depicted the newly discovered American continent, following the Elizabethan navigation and the possession of Virginia, as a metaphor for the woman who was the object of his desire. However, for me, the “Myne of precious stones” is the North American continent, the USA, with its populous and bountiful cities such as New York, New Orleans, Atlanta, San Francisco, its rivers, the Mississippi, its lakes, its immense distances, its deserts, its wilderness areas, its canyons, and of course, its wonderful flora and fauna. This book of drawings in pencil, ink and water colour shows some of the precious stones that I have found.< Less
The Fort Dearborn Massacre and the Birth of Chicago By James Alton James, Nelly Kinzie Gordon, Linai T. Helm
Paperback: $9.95

The present-day Midwest American city of Chicago was, at the time of its founding in the early 1800s, on the extreme western frontier of the then expanding United States of America. As such, it was... More > on the frontline of the great race war between Europeans and American Indians—and as this book powerfully demonstrates, became symbolic of that bloody and brutal conflict. The first major construction in the city was the large timber-framed Fort Dearborn—and it was just outside this fort in 1812 that dozens of men, women, and children were massacred by Indian attackers. The original fort was razed, and all the whites driven out, only to return later in even larger numbers and re-establish the settlement which became America’s second largest city. This work contains three parts: an overview of the development of Chicago from its earliest times; a compilation of documents which include an eyewitness account from a soldier survivor, Linai T. Helm; and other important papers which give insight into these events.< Less

Once upon a time, ancient glaciers oozed light through the general living room of America, scraping the terrain into the sweeping prairies of the Midwest, a superlatively grassy expanse in which... More > American bison cavorted with dangerous electric fish-goats and no one got hurt. That was a long time ago. Then one day we woke up and it was everywhere: ULTRAMEGAPRAIRELAND. Referentially crammed and brimming with cultural bling, the poems in ULTRAMEGAPRAIRIELAND range from forlorn to flipped out, citing and subverting far-flung sources high, holy, and WTF. "I wrote all of the poems after moving back to the Midwest from the Middle East," explains Workman. "They are all somehow symptomatic of my inability to adjust, not to the Midwest per se, but just in general. Surviving the Midwest is all about juxtaposition." Elisabeth Workman is the author of several chapbooks. This is her first book-length collection. She lives in Minneapolis with designer/typographer Erik Brandt and their daughter.< Less
