Description - Hella Nation by Evan Wright

Evan Wright has always had an affinity with outsiders - what he calls 'the lost tribes of America'. In Hella Nation, he takes us on a deeply personal journey to meet people for whom the American dream is either just out of grasp, or something they have chosen to reject altogether. From radical anarchists plotting the overthrow of capitalism and his stark but sympathetic portraits of sex workers in Porn Valley to runaway teens earning a living as skateboard pitchmen and young American troops on the hunt for terrorists in Afghanistan. Sometimes frightening, usually profane, and often darkly comic, Hella Nation is Wright's meticulously observed account of the jagged edges of all those other Americas hiding in plain sight amid the nation's malls and gated communities.
