Pulphead : Notes from the Other Side of America Paperback



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.
