History of America through the eyes of a green accordian,
By A Customer
This review is from: Accordion Crimes (Hardcover)
This is a great book. Annie Proulx absorbs and describes detail like no one else, sometimes to a level that makes the reader cringe with the realism, often tinged with black humour. If you are interested in the complex morass that is the USA, with its rich diversity of people, its religious extremes, its poverty and wealth, this provides a living history beginning with the Italian immigrant who first built the small green accordian we follow on its travels.
