A True History of the Captivation, Transport to Strange by Josh Russell

By Josh Russell

Just like the Puritan-era narratives she reports, Hannah Guttentag’s early-1990s narrative is a chronicle of the unusual locations she travels—Nashville, Ithaca, New Orleans, Cleveland, Nebraska—the savages who captivate her—librarians, grad scholars, professors, her baby—and the redemption she earns.

Josh Russell's prior novels are Yellow Jack and My vivid Midnight. An Illinois native—born in Carbondale, raised in Normal—he now lives in Decatur, Georgia together with his spouse and daughter.
