Book of the week

"Opioid, Indiana" by Brian Allen Carr (fiction). Set in the beleaguered heart of Indiana's opioid crisis, Brian Allen Carr's timely and tender novel about a teen struggling to find his place in the world -- and come up with $800 rent -- is at once a moving rumination on the hopeful power of story and a harrowing insight into modern America.
