Corners sharp. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark.

The first chapter, "Finding Myself in Iowa, " concerns the author's attempts to discover what on earth he was doing in the heartland of America and his growing affection for his adopted state. "London Bridges" describes something of the other half of the author's life in "the greatest city in the world." Other chapters invoke a southern… Read More
