Dave Wood's Book Report, Oct. 7, 2009
I first encountered University of Wisconsin professor Jerry Apps' books on the non fiction shelf. He's written informatively about Wisconsin breweries, Wisconsin agriculture, Wisconsin barns -- 20 non-fiction books in all.
Apps has now turned his attention to fiction. Last year, I reviewed his novel, "In a Pickle," which he derived from his on experiences as the manager of an old-fashioned pickle factory, the kind that used to dot the Wisconsin landscape.
