Today's Boston Sunday Globe has a nice review of my new book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, which was released last Thursday.
The inevitable pull-quote for the paperback: "a smart read that feels particularly timely now, when so many would claim a mythically unified “Founding Fathers’’ as their political ancestors."
Last week, I had the pleasure of presenting American Nations to audiences in Camden and Bangor, and am looking forward to a pair of events here in Portland later this month. Bloomberg continues their five-part series of excerpts tomorrow, and Rolling Stone.com has an interview scheduled to run the following day. Thanks to all for the kind attention and insightful comments.
I am an award-winning journalist and author of American Nations, American Character, Ocean's End, The Lobster Coast, and The Republic of Pirates. I'm a staffer at the Portland Press Herald, where I won a 2012 George Polk Award for my investigative reporting and was named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
