America America deserves a better review than what I'm able to thumb-type on my phone.

But for now, in brief, I'll simply say it's the best book I've read in some time.

The narrator reminds me a little of the newspaperman from Pat Conroy's South of Broad, but the book is far less overwrought or overdone. And the plot is far more meaningful.

I'll be searching out everything Ethan Canin has written, but I'll be stunned if anything else is this good.

America America is epic.
