dc.description.abstractThe Hunting Ground and Other Stories is a collection exploring themes of addiction, love and class within the landscape of New Jersey, the wilderness of Alaska, or the Adirondack Mountains. All characters had their formative years in the suburbs of New Jersey and this manifests itself in unexpected ways. The characters in these stories are second or third generation Dutch immigrants who struggle with their conservative and religious culture both inwardly and in their daily interactions with those around them. Whether the stories are about two estranged sisters who must interact with each other after a tragedy, a recovering alcoholic who babysits the child of the married man she loves, or two young sisters who are navigating childhood in the Adirondacks while taking care of their alcoholic Aunt, each story explores the difficulties of addiction amidst a conservative and religious culture that doesn’t have the words to start a conversation.en_US
