New Jersey is the Garden State, but it's also known for its highways and chemical plants. Young writers from New Jersey make sense of their home state's mixed reputation in a new collection called Living on the Edge of the World: New Jersey Writers Take On the Garden State. Contributors Kathleen DeMarco, Christian Bauman, and James Kaplan join us to explain what's weird and wonderful about New Jersey.

Living on the Edge of the World is available for purchase at amazon.com
