A Flame Called Indiana

An Anthology of Contemporary Hoosier Writing

As Kurt Vonnegut, Indiana's most famous writer, once remarked, "Wherever you go, there is always a Hoosier doing something important there."

A Flame Called Indiana features 65 writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry who have all had the pleasure of being Hoosiers at one time or another. Curated by the Indiana University Bloomington creative writing department, this diverse anthology features everything from the immigrant experience to the Indianapolis 500 to science fiction. Altogether, the work stands testament to the vibrancy and creativity of this Midwest state.

An excellent gift for your favorite reader and an important resource for creative writers, A Flame Called Indiana serves as both a chronicle of where Indiana's writing is today and a beacon to those who'll take it where it's going next.

About the Authors

Doug Paul Case is author of the book of poems Americanitis and four chapbooks, including Contemporary Aesthetics. He is Academic Specialist of English and Assistant Director of Creative Writing at Indiana University and lives in Bloomington.

Reviews

"A Flame Called Indiana is a wonder and a delight—a beautifully wide view of the world and how art can help us make our way through it, as seen by those who call Indiana home. Each story, poem, and essay takes us deeper into its hidden places and stories, the people they've touched, and the human mysteries they pass along to us like fires in the dark. A tour guide for the heart of the heart of the country. I dare anyone to read this and call Indiana a flyover state again."—Patrick Coleman, author of The Churchgoer and Fire Season
