416 pages


John Jeremiah Sullivan takes us on a funhouse hall-of-mirrors ride through the other side of America – to the Ozarks for a Christian rock festival; to Florida to meet the straggling refugees of MTV’s Real World; to Indiana to investigate the formative years of Michael Jackson and Axl Rose and then to the Gulf Coast in the wake of Katrina – and back again as its residents confront the BP oil spill. Simultaneously channeling the gonzo energy of Hunter S. Thompson and the wit and insight of Joan Didion, Sullivan – with a laidback, erudite Southern charm that’s all his own – shows us how America really (no, really) lives now.
