Review: Things You Would Know If You Grew Up Around Here

"If fiction can help us learn to live new realities, then this is a good place to begin."

I reviewed Things You Would Know If You Grew Up Around Here: A Novel (Bloomsbury) by Texas native Nancy Wayson Dinan, former editor of Texas Tech University literary journal Iron Horse, for Lone Star Literary Life!

"Taking as inspiration what will become known as the historic Central Texas Memorial Day Flood of 2015, Dinan, among visitations animal, vegetable, mineral, and ghost, concocts a bittersweet brew of magical realism and environmental elegy."
