About this title


In It Seems to Me, Edward E. Dinse portrays a rare and vivid glimpse into the past. His honest and even-keeled gaze in the rearview mirror of the mid-twentieth century serves as both a critique of Christian fundamentalism and an incredibly tender elegy to what might have been. Born at the beginning of the Great Depression, he was the youngest of three surviving children and was just two years old when he was orphaned by the suicides of both his mother and then his father. Raised separately from his siblings—his childhood was not without joy. The rural farming life in northeastern Wisconsin provided a unique and wholesome childhood except for the corporal whip of strict and severe religious doctrines his adoptive family held. With a sweeping and well-timed prose, this eloquent narrative reads as a personal and deeply moving tribute to the exuberance of youth and the triumph of the human spirit.

About the Author:

Edward E. Dinse received his master's in English from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. His poetry has been published in small literary journals, and his short stories for teens have also appeared in small periodicals. He has read fiction at conferences, most notably the Twentieth-Century Literature conference at the University of Louisville. A retired professor, he and his wife have five children and live in Indiana.
