Read full description of the books:



In the early 1970s, Tarn Wilson's father quit his job as the Brookings Institution's first computer programmer, packed his family into a converted school bus with "Suck Nixon" painted on the side, and headed for the Canadian wilderness. He planned to give his two young children an Edenic childhood, free from the shadows of war, materialism, and middle class repression. Between each lyric chapter, told from the child's point of view, Wilson incorporates "artifacts" that reveal larger cultural forces shaping her parents' decisions: letters, photographs, timelines, newspaper clippings, excepts from radical approaches to child rearing. In the space between the child's vision and the adult context, readers are invited to consider the gifts and burdens of a counterculture childhood.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Slow Farm read Online!
Tarn Wilson has settled in the heart of shiny and fast-paced Silicon Valley, so far from the outhouses and kerosene lamps of her rural Canadian childhood that she sometimes feels as if she’s lived two hundred years. So she tromps through the hills as often as she can, identifying plants and spying on animals. In a typical week, she devotes a couple hours a day to writing at her red desk—and has been published by Brevity, Defunct, Gulf Stream, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, Inertia, River Teeth, Ruminate, South Loop Review, and The Sun, among others. In the afternoon, she teaches high school students, who hail from all over the world and who never stop impressing her with their creativity and courage. She’s led writing workshops in programs across the US, from Maine to Oregon. She earned a master’s in education from Stanford and an MFA from the Rainier Writing Workshop and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
