    MOBI State by State PDF/EPUB Ç State by PDF \ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ state mobile, state epub, State by ebok, State by State KindleA predictably mixed bag such is always the case with multiple author collections like this based on an outstanding concept State by State A Panoramic Portrait of America provides 50 state essays think micro versions of the WPA guides from 50 authors plus a tacked on and boring conversation with Edward P Jones about Washington DCSome are breathtaking homages to states that perhaps don't get the attention they deserve Anthony Doerr's phenomenal essay on Idaho perhaps the best in the entire collection brings in not only the state's history but his history with it as well Jayne Anne Phillips an author I've not read but will soon gives a similarly stellar treatment of her home state West Virginia I admire the fact that the editors attempted to bring in a varied collection of authors some familiar with the state about which they were writing some not but I think the book succeeds the mos

    MOBI State by State PDF/EPUB Ç State by PDF \ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ state mobile, state epub, State by ebok, State by State KindleIt's going to hard for me to assess this book without sounding too gushing because it's probably my favorite book of the last year or two favorite is not to be confused with the best which it isn't If you feel ahistorical and disconnected from America and what it means and used to mean this book will change that at least temporarily and reintroduce you to the impossible America of literature Reading it is like going on the Great American Road Trip you never took with lots of wonderful lyrical descriptions and telling details It made me want to go pick up the old WPA guides to the states and dig through old issues of Life magazine and hop a boxcar to South Dakota not necessarily in that order Some other thoughts 1 I wish that of the essays were written by people who still lived in the states they wrote about It seems like every third essay is written by someone who lives in New York City and something feels wrong
