Rec Room: Alex Halperin: State by State

January 21, 2010


Alex_Halperin-small.jpg Inspired by the government writing projects of the depression, the editors of State by State assigned writers to pen essays on each of the states. It’s a fun exercise. My home state essay, Jonathan Franzen interviewing New York—and her publicists—is terrific. I also enjoyed Jack Hitt on South Carolina snobbery and Tony Horwitz on Virginia’s morbid sensibility. States are weird political entities and it’s hard to know more than a few well. Thumbing around this book is a great way to see the country.
