Abstract:

"US guys: The true and twisted mind of the American man is Charlie LeDuff's road trip into the heart of American manhood. No one knows this territory better than LeDuff, a national reporter for The New York Times, who has spent the last year on the job sites and at the kitchen tables of a vivid cast of ordinary men. From the jaded homicide detective in Detroit to the two-bit jockey at a race track in Miami, these are the everyday sons of the country: caught by change, trapped between their histories and dreams, whipsawed by an America they love but increasingly fail to understand. Although they come from every corner of the country, they speak a common language - an inadvertent poetry of dignity and distress captured by LeDuff's prose."--Jacket.
