Chris Fink is the author of Farmer’s Almanac, a work of fiction published in March, 2013 by Emergency Press. Fink is a professor at Beloit College in Wisconsin, where he teaches literature, writing, and journalism. He is also the editor of the Beloit Fiction Journal.
“Fink is clear-eyed and unsentimental, his voice free of disdain and charged with earthy eloquence.”
- Scott Russell Sanders, author of Earth Works: Selected Essays
“Farmer’s Almanac is one of the most evocative collections I’ve read on the limitations and hard pleasures of small-town rural life, and manual labor. Fink writes beautifully about characters who, when set upon by the limitations of where they live, adapt, and then discover that every so often, as a reward, the world will open up to them.”
- Jim Shepard, author of You Think That’s Bad and Like You’d Understand, Anyway
