Fueled by an insider's view of Indiana and the state's often surprising connections to the larger world, IN Writing is revelatory. It is Indiana in all its glory: sacred and profane; saints and sinners; war and peace; small towns and big cities; art, architecture, poetry and victuals. It's about Hoosier talent and Hoosier genius: the courageous farmer-soldiers who ardently try to win the hearts and minds of 21st century Afghan insurgents; the artisans whose work pulses with the aesthetics of far-away homelands; and the famous modernist poet who had to leave to make his mark. It's about places that speak to a wider world: Columbus and its remarkable architecture; New Harmony and its enduring idealism; Indianapolis and its world-renowned Crown Hill cemetery. IN Writing makes visible the unexpected bonds between Indiana and the world at large.

MEDIA REVIEWS
IN Writing truly does succeed at Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State, as its subtitle promises. . .Readers of all tastes will find something to savor here. * Bloom *
With eloquent and polished style . . . highlights people, towns and events that carried impact beyond Indiana's borders. * Tribune Star *
As a born Hoosier, he knows Indiana extremely well, as this wide-ranging compilation of his journalism shows. Bobby Knight is here of course but, more interestingly, so are John Dillinger, Alfred Kinsey and Ezra Pound. * Indianapolis Star *
Wissing is clearly a masterful interviewer, capable of drawing revealing insights and colorful anecdotes from both famous and obscure subjects. * Indiana Magazine of History *
A compilation of quirky, well-crafted essays... * Indianapolis Star *
