From the Publisher:
"Nothing less than the soul of an extremely interesting human being at war on our behalf." Kurt Vonnegut
A stunning portrait of modern America by Colby Buzzell, the critically acclaimed author of My War: Killing Time in Iraq. Recounting his five-month journey through the country, from its thriving coastlines to its rust-belt wrecks, Buzzell reveals a paradoxical landscape of American dreams both achieved and broken, manifest destinies claimed and refuted, and community ties pulled apart and patched together. In the tradition of John Steinbecks Travels with Charley, Buzzells Lost in America uncovers the stark realities of our national character even as it explores the deepest questions of identity, unity, and fatherhood.
