Description: If a new text is ever added to the syllabus for citizenship classes, it ought to be this marvelous work of travel writing, social commentary, and road comedy by Jonathan Raban, author of the National Book Award-winning bestseller Bad Land.

In Hunting Mr. Heartbreak Raban follows the footsteps of Hector St. John de Crevecoeur -- "Heartbreak" in English -- who, in 1782, wrote the pioneering account of the immigrant experience in America. In adapting Mr. Hearthreak's journey for our time, Raban passes for homeless in Manhattan and tries to pass for a good ol' boy in Alabama. He sees the Protestant work ethic perfected by Koreans in Seattle and cheerfully repudiated by the lowlife of Key West. With wonder, humor, and an unblinking eye for its contradictions, Raban makes readers experience a fresh America.
