    • Abstract:
      Summary: "In the wake of Hurricane Katrina and on the eve of a national recession, New York Times writer Dan Barry launched a column about America: not the one populated only by cable-news pundits, but the America defined and redefined by those who clean the hotel rooms, tend the beet fields, endure disasters both natural and manmade. As the name of the president changed from Bush to Obama to Trump, Barry was crisscrossing the country, filing deeply moving stories from the tiniest dot on the American map to the city that calls itself the Capital of the World. Complemented by the select images of award-winning Times photographers, these narrative and visual snapshots of American life create a majestic tapestry of our shared experience, capturing how our nation is at once flawed and exceptional, paralyzed and ascendant, as cruel and violent as it can be gentle and benevolent."--Amazon.com

LJ Reviews 2018 August #1

Barry (The Boys in the Bunkhouse) was assigned to cover the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, witnessing a world that suggested he travel the country to tell the larger American story. These 70-plus diverse and relatable bite-sized pieces, written between 2007 and 2016, serve as a momentary window into the lives, struggles, and triumphs of Americans. A small town in West Virginia that continues its reliance on coal despite tragic conditions evokes feelings of change, the tragedy of a Tennessee father executed by electric chair owing to an unthinkable crime conjures emotions of despair, a school in the Kansas plains gathering to watch the 2009 inauguration of a president who promoted hope provides optimism to teachers and students, as does an Italian American family in New York supporting their son as he entertains by dressing and singing as Judy Garland. A touching story of a couple who met in a workforce development program for people with disabilities is a welcome reminder that love is universal. VERDICT These stories offer a candid glimpse of raw emotion that will resonate with audiences long after they've been read.—David Miller, Farmville P.L., NC
