Dean Kuipers’s new memoir, The Deer Camp, recounts how a wildlife habitat project saved his relationship to his father by getting their hands in the dirt. He is an award-winning journalist and writes on nature, environmental politics, and the arts. He is the author of several nonfiction books, including Burning Rainbow Farm, which was a 2007 Library of Michigan Foundation Notable Book; Operation Bite Back, about eco-activist Rod Coronado; and I Am A Bullet, a study of cultural acceleration with fine artist Doug Aitken. Kuipers and his wife, Lauri Kranz, co-authored A Garden Can Be Anywhere, a personal and stylish new how-to book on organic gardening. He has edited two books about the much-beloved rock and roll magazine, Ray Gun, including the new Ray Gun: The Bible of Music and Style.
