When British journalist Nick Wood thought about America, he thought of a country where death was becoming a national pastime, a bizarre obsession, and, in some cases, a spectator sport. He decided to go and see for himself. This is Wood's funny and tragic account of his journey along a route of carnage and destruction, from LA to New York, with the Grim Reaper as his guide and traveling companion.
