Pacific Standard Magazine also featured the book a little while back. I really appreciate writer James McWilliams’ thoughtful, thorough approach. One of my favorite excerpts:
“Lauren Pond’s work suggests that the art of grasping genuine cultural difference—something that’s essential to effective reporting on the American electorate—demands so much more. It asks us to shed our preconceptions, enter strange communities in a spirit of tolerance and humility, interact with genuine respect and curiosity, and earn the trust of our subjects. It asks us, in other words, to do so much more than conventional journalism currently asks us to do.”
Please stay tuned for additional coverage!
