By Paul Druecke 

Paul Druecke's second book, Life and Death on the Bluffs, offers a bird's eye view of 12,000 years of history on the southwest corner of Lake Michigan. Written from multiple perspectives and shifting eras of habitation, the book is an unflinching look at community. Druecke's search for human family is anchored by two Milwaukee landmarks-a Native American burial mound and the Marcia Coles Community Room-and draws its inspiration from the cultural landscape and the voices of David Markson, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and W. G. Sebald, among others. Part journal, part history, part existential collage, Life and Death on the Bluffs debuted at the Whitney Biennial in New York City in 2014. 

Softcover, 70 pages
