A new book by local writer Ross Klatte, entitled How Long Have I Been Here, has recently been published.

It’s a collection of short stories that “take the reader on intense emotional and physical journeys from Mexico to rural Minnesota to the busy metropolis of Chicago and beyond,” according to Nelson writer Brian Deon.

Author Ernest Hekkanen, who first published many of these stories in the New Orphic Review, writes in his blurb for the book that he’s reminded “of John Steinbeck, Anton Chekhov and Alice Munro.”

Poet and writer Tom Wayman writes that in his latest book Klatte “displays again his consummate skill at fiction that has resulted in his being shortlisted for the 2011 Journey Prize.”

How Long Have I Been Here is also available for purchase at Otter Books, Coles and online distributors such as Amazon and Indigo.
