America Day by Day
America Day by Day

The report of a four-month trip to and across the United States, by a prominent French writer. Aggressively subjective, very selective in the areas of American life sampled, the book is of primary interest as a double-mirror problem: what reflection does the author see when looking at America and what reflection does the American reader see in his encounter with the author?
