Visions on America by Jean Koning

Book Description: Visions provides the year 2006 in columns. Jean Koning investigated the American Way of Life through European Eyes for an American Magazine during the promotion of his personal vision of the American Song Book presented on the album Notes from Purgatory.In these unique tales Koning mixes politics with sexuality, humor with tragedy and intelligence with complete naivety.The stories are touching and thrilling, and offer a unique glance at America from an artist s point of view. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My Thoughts: Visions is a collection of columns written for the e-zine The Noise. A surprisingly intimate portrait on life and every day politics, accomplished with a fierce manner of writing. I found the book very humorous and easy to read. I was able to read it in a couple of hours. I look forward to read more books by Jean Koning. I give this book 4 stars out of 5.
