Postcards from the End of America free pdf Roaming the country by bus and train, on a budget, Linh Dinh set out to document what life is like for people. From Los Angeles, Cheyenne, Portland and New Orleans, to Jackson and Wolf Point - Linh walked miles and miles through unfamiliar neighbourhoods, talking to whoever would talk to him: the homeless, the peddlers, the protestors, the public preachers, the sex workers. With an uncompromising eye and indomitable, forthright prose, Dinh documents the appalling and the absurd with warmth and honesty, giving voice to America's often forgotten citizens.
