Review: Elsewhere, U.S.A. by Dalton Conley


Book Reviews

This is probably the shortest review I have ever written (and will ever write), so here we go: Reading Dalton Conley’s Elsewhere, U.S.A.: How We Got from the Company Man, Family Dinners, and the Affluent Society to the Home Office, BlackBerry Moms, and Economic Anxiety is a bit like going to a concert to experience Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and then hearing the finale (that’s a shockingly good interpretation btw) replaced by a rendering of Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead! It’s a great book, but do yourself a favour and don’t read the “Conclusions”.
