America

Description

In America, France's leading philosopher of postmodernism took to the freeways to produce a collection of traveler's tales from the land of hyperreality.

From the sierras of New Mexico to the streets of New York and LA by night - 'a sort of luminous, geometric, incandescent immensity' - Baudrillard mixes apercus and observations with a wicked sense of fun to provide a unique insight into the country that dominates the world.

In this new edition, leading cultural critic and novelist Geoff Dyer offers a thoughtful and perceptive take on the continuing resonance of Baudrillard's book in Obama's America.
