BOM for January

Book Of the Month, Jan.

Searching For Whitopia: An Improbable Journey to the Heart of White America. Rich Benjamin. Hyperion, 2009. E184.A1 B374 2009
This nugget of middle-brow pop-sociological exploration finds journalist Rich Benjamin staying for a time in various all-white exurbs and reporting his findings.
Whitopia is Benjamin's term for towns like St. George, Utah and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, whose residents are attempting to return to a "simpler time."
Benjamin's prose is jaunty and brisk, his style narrative more than analytical.
