About Oklahoma Is Where I Live—
Oklahoma Is Where I Live is an autobiographical collection of short stories, mostly nonfiction, from the author of the award-winning, visionary fiction novel, The Lhasa Trilogy.
Storytelling is an Oklahoma tradition, dating back to a Native American past. Like any true Okie, it is in Gary Conrad’s roots to tell his story — the ups, the downs, the in betweens.
“Each and every one of us has a book buried inside ourselves about precious, sacred moments in our lives,” says Conrad. “My fondest hope is that ‘Oklahoma Is Where I Live’ will help you to recall stories of your own — ones, if you so wish, you can share with others.”
Travel with Conrad into times of laughter, tears, success, failure and moments that challenged him to the very core of his being.
