Man Killed by Pheasant and Other Kinships: A Memoir
Grounded in place, in the great grasslands of the Midwest, John Price’s large-hearted memoir is nevertheless a story that knows no boundaries. Kinship is the thread that runs throughout, with creatures in his back yard and in the wild, with Swedish ancestors, with neighbors, with the Midwestern prairies, and with his wife and children. Often smiling at the earthy absurdities of ordinary life, and at other moments resonant with both joy and sorrow, Man Killed by Pheasant bears poignant witness to the bonds that link us all.
