Cul-de-sacs, Keg Stands, and Coming of Age in the Midwest

By Melanie LaForce

Corn-Fed is a nostalgic romp through growing up in the Midwest. Poignant, humorous, and honest, Corn-Fed will take you from childhood overnight camp, to a first job at Dairy Queen, to the ultimate culmination of rich and debaucherous adult friendships. Corn-Fed follows LaForce’s growth, struggles, and exhilaration with communities of women over the course of life. Most importantly, this book contains critical references to boobs and butter.
