Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "One day, Jesse Donaldson wakes up in Portland, Oregon, and asks his wife to uproot their life together and move to his native Kentucky. As he searches for the reason behind this sudden urge, Donaldson examines both the place where he was born and the life hes building. The result is a hybrid part memoir, part meditation on nostalgia, part catalog of Kentucky history and myth. Organized according to Kentucky geography, with one passage for each of the commonwealths 120 counties, On Homesickness examines whether we can ever return to the places weve called home." -- Publisher website.
