My review of Nick Redding’s Methland: The Death and Life of An American Small Town is in the July issue of Bookslut. It was supposed to be in the June issue, actually, but I missed my deadline and am now crushed to see the book get the coveted front-page slot in the latest NYT‘s Sunday Book Review.
“Crushed” for me, but ecstatic for Redding—he’s written a great book that deserves a wide readership. And as for that NYT review? I think we can all agree that my lede’s better.
