Book Description 
  
Commentary by Andrei Codrescu A vibrant, offbeat tribute to the American people. Land of the Free is photographer David Graham's tribute to the American people in all their idiosyncratic splendor. A tireless traveler and a natural-born storyteller, Graham has photographed ordinary folks in their homes and at their jobs across the nation-from his native Pennsylvania to New Mexico, and many places in between-to assemble a composite picture of America. Graham's portraits of celebrity impersonators are also featured; here you'll find look-alikes for Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Roy Orbison, Bette Midler and Elizabeth Taylor. Land of the Free: What Makes Americans Different does for America in the 1980s and 1990s what Bill Owens's Suburbia did to capture the 1970s. It is a mirror of its time, held slightly askew by a gifted photographer, then turned upside down by a highly imaginative writer. The wry insights of NPR commentator and author Andrei Codrescu accompany Graham's photographs.
