Let Us Build Us a City, by Donald Harington

Categorized in:

let us build is a city

A tour of the history, present, and curiosities of 11 ghost-, or soon to be ghost-, towns in Arkansas. A fascinating text; it’s based on research and interviews, but mixes in things that must clearly be fiction, without delineation. Powerfully well written; it’s shameful Harington isn’t considered one of America’s best writers.
