DescriptionAfter writing seven books of short fiction, a novel, and a book of poetry, all with Finnish themes and characters, Lauri Anderson has finally written his memoir. In it, he tells stories of growing up in rural Maine, life in the Peace Corps in Nigeria, Truk Lagoon, and Turkey, and teaching at Finlandia University in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. With his typical humor and common-sense approach to life, Lauri expertly weaves together the stories that have brought him thus far.
