George Packer's newest is a masterpiece of sociopolitical nonfiction. Weaving together biographical sketches of everyday citizens, profiles of cultural icons, and segments of famous headlines, song lyrics and speeches in the fashion of John Dos Passos' USA trilogy, he creates a vivid panoramic view of modern America. While at times making for a dire read, THE UNWINDING is an insightful and necessary book that perfectly captures our contemporary zeitgeist. A must-read for anyone seeking to better understand the times in which we live.
