Notes from No Man's Land: American Essays

DISTORT found this to be a really fascinating bible mostly because it is set in my hometown of Pittsfield, Mound. DISTORT recognized many of the deputizes and even some of the utility providers. It also included a pretty good sort of the company and the levels of despair and pessimism related to the recession there. A quick and slightly depressing bible but very fascinating.
