Dave Wood's Book Report, Dec. 31, 2008
Two talented upper Midwestern writers with ethnic interests headline today's book report.
The first is by University of Wiscosnin-Superior poet and fiction writer Anthony Bukoski. It's a collection of short stories, Bukoski's fifth book, entitled "North of the Port" (Southern Methodist University Press, $22.50).
Bukoski, who grew up in Superior, sets most of his stories on the port city's east end, a Polish ghetto in the throes of change.
