Short Stories Set On Nantucket, In Various Centuries
Island Fog is a collection of eleven short stories set on Nantucket- each at a different time period. Some of the characters the reader meets along the way include an 18th century wigmaker accused of a notorious bank robbery, a former whale ship captain who once had to resort to cannibalism to survive an extended period at sea, and a 20th century plumber whose wife jumped off the Hyannis to Nantucket ferry with her infant child in her arms. John Vanderslice is the author of Island Fog, and he teaches in the MFA program at the University of Central Arkansas. Mindy Todd interviews him on The Point.
