“In SISTER CITY Ian Woollen holds up a mirror between Indiana and the Yucatán, and the reflection is an imaginative, funny, compelling, and beautiful world. These are characters and stories, peoples and places, that stay with you because Ian Woollen is a storyteller and shaman, an enchanter of new forms of community and empathy, a novelist who has composed poetic consejo for our time.”

- Ron Carlson, author of FIVE SKIES and THE SIGNAL
