Hella Nation: Looking for Happy Meals in Kandahar, Rocking the Side Pipe,Wingnuts War Against the GAP, and Other Adventures with the Totally Lost Tribes of America by Evan Wright

From the award-winning and New York Times?estselling author of Generation Kill, a reporter? immersion in outsider cultures?His style owes more to Hunter S. Thompson than to any sort of political correctness?(Newsday). From his work as a reporter at Hustlermagazine, to his National Magazine Award?inning writing for Rolling Stoneand Vanity Fair, Evan Wright has always had an affinity for outsiders?hat he calls ?he lost tribes of America.?The previously published pieces in this collection chart a deeply personal journey, beginning with his stark but sympathetic portrayals of sex workers in Porn Valley, through his raw portrait of a Hollywood beragent-turned-war documentarian and hero of America? far right. Along the way, Wright encounters runaway teens earning corporate dollars as skateboard pitchmen; radical anarchists plotting the overthrow of corporate America; and young American troops on the hunt for terrorists in the combat zones of the Middle East. His subjects are people for whom the American dream is either just out of grasp, or something they?e chosen to reject altogether. Sometimes frightening, usually profane, and often darkly comic, Hella Nation is Evan Wright? meticulously observed tour of the jagged edges of all those other Americas hiding in plain sight amid the nation? malls and gated communities. The collection also includes an all-new, autobiographical introductory essay by the author.
