it’s interesting that the film with Jack Nicholson has made One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest the most famous book set in Oregon… because in Oregon, we probably think Sometimes a Great Notion (also by Kesey, of course) is more typically “Oregon” … Cuckoo’s nest could, frankly, be any Institution anywhere, but SaGN could only be set in Oregon…

I’m really skeptical about their choice for New Jersey. One of Roth’s novels has got to be more famous, surely. Where’s the data on this?

I think by “most famous” they meant “let’s think of A book set in each state!” and then published the list.

Damn, I haven’t read the book for my home state (Michigan) or my adopted state (Ohio).

Thursday! Thursday! Thursday!
…You’re not letting trivialities like “life”, “work” and “family” get in the way of blogging again, are you?
