Travels in a Strange State

Travels in a Strange State - Josie Dew One of the few books I've dropped because the style ruined the substance. The writer has genuinely interesting and courageous adventures, but the sentences are all at the same synaptic/apocalyptic level, a kind of working-class quipping, as alluded to in my update. It might work as disconnected fables from history if less honest and more overwritten.
