“Part ethnography, part oral history, part radio documentary, ‘I Can Almost See the Lights of Home’ is a hybrid work, an ‘essay-in-sound’ designed to be heard, not read. It is best, then, not to read along while listening. This is a long work, so we have divided it into sections. The outline below lists the order and time of the different chapters and movements. A transcription of the essay, complete with song lyrics and the names of speakers, is included elsewhere in the Journal for reference.” — Charles Hardy III
