“In this remarkable book, Howard Mansfield re-mystifies the cold, hard land of the American northeast. His prose is at turns arresting with its poignancy and laugh-out-loud funny. It’s good to go on this jaunt with him. He has a knack for spotting the wild characters that lead us into the electric realm between memory and hope.”
— Lulu Miller, Author of Why Fish Don't Exist and co-host of Radiolab
Howard Mansfield writes about architecture, preservation, and history in his quest to understand the soul of American places.
