Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Vividly weaving memory, urban legend, and stark reality, PULLED FROM THE RIVER explores the distance between a city's greatness and its failures, between place and identity, between who we are and who we hope to be. "This is a story of loss, yes, but more than that; it's a story of love, a story carefully and beautifully told. Jon Chopan is a writer with moxie and heart. He may tell us not to believe everything we read, but, thanks to his veracity and precision, we do. We most certainly do." Lee Martin, author of The Bright Forever
