Already, I know Gierach’s new book will be fine…

From Tom Chandler’s review, this extract from the new Gierach book, Fool’s Paradise:

“I’m still waiting for Americans to realize that being in constant communication is not an advantage, but a short leash. Cell phones have changed us from a nation of self-reliant pioneer types into a bunch of men standing alone in supermarkets saying ‘Okay, I’m in the the tampon aisle, but I don’t see it.’”
