Book hailed as a ‘love letter to Indiana’

April 30, 2013

    Brian Kimberling is no stranger to Hoosiers and their ways, as a native of southern Indiana himself. But only he could come up with Snapper, a book many are calling "a love letter to Indiana" that makes the state as interesting and vibrantly alive for those who don't live here and love it as it is for those who do.
    Kimberling spent the early part of his life in Evansville, and he studied birds as a research assistant for two years. Since then, he has lived in the Czech Republic, Turkey, and Mexico, and he currently resides in England. However, his heart has always remained in Indiana; he says he'd love to have a "quaint log cabin" in Brown County.
    Kimberling notes that though Snapper is considered a love letter, "not all love letters are complimentary," and he is fully aware that some Hoosiers won't like it. Kimberling loves his home state, but he doesn't romanticize it; Snapper is a very realistic view of the state.
