State of Writing

6 segments
In today's monoculture, are the individual states still distinguishable from one another? The WPA-inspired State By State: A Panoramic Portrait of America includes essays by Jonathan Franzen on New York and Rick Moody on Connecticut. They’re joined by the book’s editor Sean Wilsey to talk about updating the Depression-era project, and location, location, location. Plus, the latest on Zimbabwe; and how to interrogate a terrorist.
