9780099572350: Pulphead: Notes from the Other Side of America

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.

Review:

"The ghost of Mark Twain is evoked in this outstanding collection of essays" ( Sunday Times)

" Pulphead is a big, fat, frequently exhilarating collection" ( Guardian)

" Pulphead has a ramshackle loquacity, a down-home hyper-eloquence and an off-the-wallishness that is quite distinct - and highly addictive" (Goeff Dyer)

"The best, and most important collection of magazine writing since David Foster Wallace's A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" ( New York Times Book Review)

"From prehistoric caves to Axl Rose's oxygen chamber, Sullivan's generous, witty voice lights up every page" (Joe Dunthorne)

Book Description:

A sharp-eyed, uniquely humane tour of America's cultural landscape - from high to low to lower than low - by the award-winning young star of the literary world
