“Astonishing immediacy . . . as though Sherlock Holmes had set out to verify Grey’s musings in his country churchyard. . . . An unqualified success . . . I can think of no book that provides so personal and yet so comprehensive a view of America, past, present, and potentially, future.”—New York Times Book Review
