Feral hogs like these at Roger McMillin's ranch near Stephenville, Texas, cause millions of dollars of damage each year in Texas.

What does the feral hog population in a region reveal about local politics? New Yorker staff writer Ian Frazier reports on this and other stories in his latest book Hogs Wild: Selected Reporting Pieces. This collection of essays and reported pieces showcases Frazier’s ability to capture the American experience, from his story about a man whose home is hit by a meteorite, to his coverage of homelessness in New York City.
