A new book by local writer Ross Klatte, titled How Long Have I Been Here, has recently been released.
It’s a collection of short stories that “take the reader on intense emotional and physical journeys from Mexico to rural Minnesota to bustling metropolis Chicago and beyond,” according to Nelson’s writer Brian Deon.
Author Ernest Hekkanen, who first published several of these stories in the New Orphic Review, writes in his blurb for the book he reminds him of “John Steinbeck, Anton Tchekhov and Alice Munro”.
Poet and writer Tom Wayman writes that in his latest book, Klatte “once again shows his consummate talent for fiction which earned him shortlisting for the Journey Prize 2011”.
How Long Have I Been Here is also available for purchase from Otter Books, Coles, and online distributors such as Amazon and Indigo.
