The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America
Monday, November 4, 2013
Author: George Packer
This award-winning non-fiction book weaves together several profiles of the famous…and not so famous….to illustrate the institutional and cultural changes taking place in America that began in the second half of the 20th century. As someone who loves non-fiction that reads like fiction, I found myself rooting for many of the unknown main characters and quickly turning pages to find out their destinies. This is a political book with no political perspective, equally critical of Joe Biden and Newt Gingrich.
