Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest

In the gaps that exist between your first cup of coffee and your last drink of cheap beer, there’s a neglected darkness. In Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest, Roy Miller pulls a rusty chain on a bare lightbulb to bring those gaps into plain view, revealing stories that are as messy as your own memories.

Caris O’Malley, author of The Egg Said Nothing

Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest is a collection of short stories that walks a line between darkness and light. As a reader you will wade through depression, addiction and death in some stories, but you’ll also be reminded of the love in stolen moments in others. The characters speak naturally and will appeal to almost any age as you navigate the pitfalls of mental health or enjoy a family dinner over the holidays. This book offers a definitive look at some of our most difficult to discuss subjects, without backing away or apologizing, but doesn’t let you get away without a quick reminder; Perseverance is a real life superpower.
