Hollow and Home

The Author

E. Fred Carlisle has been writing about identity and place for years. He is the author of four previous books—two memoirs, and studies of Walt Whitman and of Loren Eiseley. A former provost at Virginia Tech, he grew up in Ohio, enjoyed a long academic career, lived for a decade in the rural Virginia mountains, and now divides his time between Virginia and South Florida.
