Another Day in the Death of America - Gary Younge - "November 23rd, 2013. It was just another day in America; an unremarkable Saturday on which ten children and teens were killed by gunfire. It was just another day in the death of America, where on a daily average - seven children and teens are killed by guns. The author picked this day at random, searched for their families and tells their stories."
The stories in this volume make for one of the most remarkable unsung collections in 20th-century American fiction. With extraordinary honesty and magnetism, Lucia Berlin invites us into her rich, itinerant life: the drink and the mess and the pain and the beauty and the moments of surprise and of grace.
