Summary
Spanning two decades, Driving home charts a course through the Pacific Northwest, American history, and current events as witnessed by "a super-sensitive, all-seeing eye." (Newsweek). Frank, witty, and provocative, Driving home is part essay collection, part diary--and irresistibly insightful about America's character, contradictions, and idiosyncrasies
