    1. In so many ways/states this text gives voice/place to transience and makes neighbors. It dislocates and locates; is a "way of seeing" engined to the voyeurism of postcards.

    3. Extremely interesting, conceptual post-card style book about one man's venture through the American heartland and beyond. Provocative, heart-breaking, and thoughtful, it was a pleasure to read.
