Good Roots · Writers Reflect on Growing Up in Ohio

Edited by Lisa Watts · Foreword by R. L. Stine · Afterword by Mark Winegardner

“A good place to be from.” That's how some people might characterize the Buckeye State. The writings in Good Roots: Writers Reflect on Growing Up in Ohio, are testimony to the truth of that statement. By prominent writers such as P. J. O'Rourke, Susan Orlean, and Alix Kates Shulman, these contributions are alternately nostalgic, irreverent, and sincere, and offer us a personal sense of place. Their childhoods are as varied as their work.
