Good Roots by Lisa Watts

Book Description

Winner of the Ohioana Library's 2008 Ohio Legacy Citation 2014-2015 Choose to Read Ohio selection "A good place to be from." That's how some people might characterize the Buckeye State. The writings in Good Roots: Writers Reflect on Growing Up in Ohio, are testimony to the truth of that statement. By prominent writers such as P. J. O'Rourke, SusanOrlean, and Alix Kates Shulman, these contributions are alternately nostalgic, irreverent, and sincere, and offer us a personal sense of place. Their childhoodsare as varied as their work. Some were raised in urban Cleveland, Akron, and Cincinnati, others in the small Ohio towns that typify the Midwest, and still others in the countryside. Yet what they have to tell us about their roots resonates with a shared heritage, a sense of what is universal and enduring about growing up in the heartland.Their collective resume reads like a literary Who's Who, including four Pulitzer Prizes, several National Book Awards, and many prestigious fellowships.Good Roots is also plain good reading from some of our country's most accomplished contemporary writers.
