Stay Here with Me: A Memoir

Stay Here with Me: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Olmstead journeys back to his youth on his grandfather's New Hampshire dairy farm to confront the ghosts that continue to afflict him, laying bare the acute pain of his father's alcoholism and the decline of his grandfather, the family patriarch. Authentic, intimate, and intense, Stay Here with Me is about growing up and leaving home and about the acts of rebellion that free the body even as they bind the soul to a place forever.

About the Author

Hailed as one of the most original voices in contemporary fiction by Raymond Carver, Lorrie Moore, and Tobias Wolff, Robert Olmstead is the author of three novels, a memoir, and a collection of stories. He has been a logger, a farmer, and a teacher, among other professions. A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts grant, he lives in Ohio.
