Our recent PhD graduate Ron Riekki has just published a novel: U.P., a novel by R.A. Riekki. Order from Ghost Road Press, 5303 E. Evans Ave., #309, Denver, CO 80222, ISBN 0-9796255-5-6, $19.95, ghostroadpress.com. Says Christopher Tilghman, "Ron Riekki takes us to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and shows us a world that is at once banal and horrific. Part Celine, part Henry Miller, Part Cormac McCarthy, Riekki delivers his vision with high intelligence and relentlessly powerful prose."
