State By State: A Panoramic Portrait of America

Guest posted by Boo Ritson,

I really enjoyed this. The back cover reads: “See America with 50 of Our Finest, Funniest, and Foremost Writers. Anthony Bourdain chases the fumigation truck in Bergen County, New Jersey. Dave Eggers tells it straight: Illinois is Number 1. Louise Erdrich loses her bikini top in North Dakota. Jonathan Franzen gets waylaid by New York’s publicist…and personal attorney…and historian…and geologist…Rick Moody explores the dark heart of Connecticut’s Merritt Parkway, exit by exit. Ann Patchett makes a pilgrimage to the Civil War site at Shiloh, Tennessee. William T. Vollmann visits a San Francisco S&M club and Many More!”
