It is impossible to contain all of United States of America in one novel. From Alabama to Wyoming, there is little to connect every work here except for fact that they are, well, American. But if youre currently sitting on your front porch, looking for escape To anywhere in America, be it Everglades of Florida, beaches of Southern California, or even cold, merciless terrain of Alaska, then worry not: We have found some of finest works of contemporary literature in this country has to offer, and place them all on One comprehensive list. Enjoy! Dont let title fool you; John Green places his main character, biography-obsess prep-School student Call Miles, in middle of love triangle center around Alabamian prep School. Green has knack for channeling coming-of-age to readers, both young and old, and idealism of youth is wrung to its bitter end as Miles must eventually confront tragedy head on. Alaska-Michael Chabon-Yiddish Policemans Michael Chabon has continually produce novels with their own living, breathing ecosystem. In this alternative history, Jews are sent to Alaska during World War II, greatly diminishing death toll and allowing them to build metropolis in relative peace. Novel Is Murder Mystery That Combines Harsh Alaska Weather With Jewish Folklore, But Half Fun Is Actually Discovering This World That Can Only Exist In Fiction. Arizona-Philip Caputo-Crossers Along with its beauty, Borderlands of Arizona are well-Know for their occasional volatility. When Gil Castle, New Yorker who lost his wife on 9 / 11, goes to his cousins ranch in Arizona, he must deal with threat as prescient as any faceless terrorist. Chronicling largely-untold American side of Mexican Drug Wars, Caputo's story is thrilling without being trashy and thoughtful without being didactic. Arkansas-Maya Angelou-I Know Why Caged Bird Sings set in small town of Stamps, Arkansas long before civil rights movement would come to fruition, Angelous literary autobiography has become both inspirational story and important historical work in African-American community. While work emphasizes persecution she and her family suffered at hands of Klu Klux Klan and other racists, Angelou is particularly uplifting in her treatment of her youth, recognizing that pain of persecution empowers her to become more vocal and defensive. California-Thomas Pynchon-Inherent Vice Thomas Pynchon has knack for creating megalithic novels with dozens of subplots and even more characters, but this tone-down novel is colorful and at Times hilarious account of hippie subculture along Southern California's beautiful surf. Inherent Vice tells story of Doc Sportello, hippie detective searching for answers as his paranoia begins catching up to him. Colorado-Wally Lamb-Hour I first believe Wally Lamb is master storyteller who can sublimely execute novels that span generations. Novel Follows Caelum And Maureen Quirk, Two Middle-age Schoolteachers Who Move To Littleton, Colorado.
