...<b>Jukebox America:<br> Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.</b>, Bunch, William
11 Bunch, William ...Jukebox America:
Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.

New York: St. Martin's Press 1994 0312110138 / 9780312110130 First Editon Hardcover in Jacket.
 
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bunch recounts his search for America's "best" jukebox, somewhat ambiguously defined as the one whose selection of songs is "in perfect sync with its time and place."

The book's subtext, however, is generational angst. Self-classified as a member of "Generation Y," Bunch takes up his mission as an expression of the restless, youthful energy he fears will be suppressed by his recent decision to marry and move to the suburbs.

His anxiety about his personal shift in direction translates into concern about cultural changes: the jukebox, a symbol of regional identity and cultural diversity, is threatened by the increasing homogenization of society.

A Chronicle of Man and the Land of Florida

Mew York: William Morrow, 1989 First Edition. Hardcover in Jacket 
Unread, Unopened; First Editon. Hint of a stain on lower rear spine corner.

"The history of Florida is the story of North America in miniature. By telling it with such eloquence and learning in ‘Some Kind of Paradise,’ Mr. Derr has revealed the dark side of the historian Frederick Jackson Turner’s famous hypothesis: our national character was indeed shaped by the frontier. . . . [Derr] writes with a journalist’s eye for telling details and an antiquarian’s fondness for digression and quirky facts. . . . The state’s tortuous journey from one extreme to the other is [his] subject, and he tackles it with brilliance and bravado."--New York Times Book Review
