American Nations in The Atlantic, Brazil, and Switzerland

There must be an epic, regionally-valent election coming up because American Nations has again been showing up in all sorts of places.

I'm greatly honored to have it included in The Atlantic's "Reading List for Those in Despair About Politics." The list was compiled by engaging an eclectic group of thought leaders, and Chai Feldblum, a commissioner with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was kind enough to chose Nations, saying it was "a eye opening experience for me....Many Americans say they love their country. The question is -- which country are they talking about.' There are a lot of other great titles in the list as well, including new works by Ta-Nahisi Coates and Yuval Levin and, most importantly, Mo Willems' Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.

Meanwhile, Brazil's Globo has this posting on the paradigm from University of Sao Paolo journalism professor Helio Gurovitz which has been getting  lot of traction on Twitter.

And, from Switzerland, there's an extended feature -- relate with color maps -- in Saturday's Neue Zurcher Zeitung from their U.S. correspondent Andreas Mink, who came up to Maine this summer to interview me. (Thus, Portland's Arabica has a cameo.) It's not online, alas, but for the one or two of you in Switzerland (or who subscribe to NZZ's e-reader) it's a fun three page spread (in German.)

And if you're a U.S. citizen, don't forget to vote.
