What Haunts Us

Loren Niemi (Author)


Loren Niemi's work has been called post-modern, "with the dark beauty of language that is not ashamed of poetry," according to Kate Lutz.

"What Haunts Us" is a collection of fifteen short stories that speak from the page in the voice of the storyteller - at turns comical, unsettling, heartbreaking and wondrous - evoking the full range of human behavior and emotion. From tales set in the northern Minnesota Boundary Waters, to the millennia-spanning landscapes of Europe and the United States, these are stories brimming with a dynamic sense of place and person, imbued with a sense of grounded reality.

Storytelling is also at the core of his work as a community organizer, public policy advocate and consultant working with marginalized communities and non-profit groups to articulate their dreams, build their capacity and resolve their conflicts.
