The nature of the election campaign and the bitter defeat of the liberals lead him to write this satirical, evocative portrait of what it looked and felt like growing up in a country gripped by an absurd, racist insanity. Full of exquisite and despairing descriptions of the landscape the White Boy is running through, this mordantly witty account of escape, displacement and disillusionment is a modern classic of journalistic memoir. 'beautifully written' - "The Times". 'mocking, angry and beautiful' - "Washington Post". 'exactly the right note of cold, poetic irony' - "Financial Times". 'exquisite and despairing' - "Newsday". 'An exceptional book' - "Los Angeles Times".Hide synopsis
