Writing from the Center is about one very fine writer's quest for a meaningful and moral life. The center he seeks and describes is geographical, emotional, artistic, and spiritual - and it is rooted in place. The geography is midwestern, the impulses are universal. Where and how do we find meaning? Where does a writer find inspiration? How can personal, artistic, family, and community needs be blended to create a harmonious life? What aids exist in such a qlocatedq life against despair? How should a writer relate to and represent his place? Twelve interrelated essays probe these questions from different perspectives. qBuckeyeq examines the resonance of objects and the mysteries of relationships and death. qImagining the Midwestq surveys how other writers have seen and related to their region. qThe Common Lifeq makes an eloquent case for community values. qSanctuaryq is an eloquent and painful consideration of environmental degradation. qWriting from the Centerq and qLetter to a Readerq deal with Sanders's decisions to locate in the Midwest, to know his place, and to write about it in both fiction and nonfiction.Instead of putting out the fire in his gut, the alcohol made it burn more fiercely. ... the chessboard, the baseball diamond and basketball court, the periodic table, the wiring diagrams of electronics, the graphs of calculus, the formulas of physics.
