Lifting the fog

In the tradition of Thoreau’s Walden, Boston College graduate and former Presidential Scholar Will Dowd takes readers on a journey through a year of New England weather in Areas of Fog (Etruscan Press, 2017), a collection of essays that combines wit and poetry with humor and erudition. Areas of Fog is Dowd’s first novel and was initially an exercise to combat writer’s block. His work has appeared in LitHubTin House online, Post Road Magazine and The Rialto, among other places. Listen to John Dankosky’s interview with Dowd on WNPR.
