Foreword Reviews


2016 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Essays (Adult Nonfiction)

Suspended between continents and cultures, Quist charts the undercurrents of an American identity. Through these essays he explores feelings of oppression and alienation as he wrestles with a single act of violence in a Washington, DC suburb, racial tensions in a rural South Carolina town, and the welcome anonymity of crowded Bangkok streets. These personal narratives are rich with Quist's experience growing up as a person of color caught between parents, socioeconomic classes and countries .
