A literary harvest: Tom Drury opens the fall program of the U.S. Embassy Literature Series

Tom Drury  took the audience  to Grouse County, an imaginary place somewhere in the Midwest, at his reading at the English Theatre Berlin on September 11, 2017. Translated as one book that combines The End of VandalismHunts In Dreams and Pacific, and published this fall by Klett-Cotta in Germany, Grouse County raises a lot of questions about America today, and parts of the country that are sometimes called “flyover states.”  It is “kind of a fractured image of the place where I grew up in the Midwest,” said Drury in his humorous and lively discussion with moderator R. Jay Magill.
