I've read this book a number of times, and always find new things to take away from it. The author's attraction to the 'obscenity' of parts of America both frightens and elates him! One of my favorite lines is: "Europe has never been a continent. You can see that by its skies. As soon as you set foot in America, you feel the presence of an entire continent - space there is the very form of thought." Grab a coffee, a comfortable seat, and go for a journey with Baudrillard; you won't regret it!

Baudrillard writes of drinking at The Commodore where F Scott Fitzgerald did, which is in Saint Paul, but he calls it Minneapolis. So sad...All the old world elegance is in Saint Paul, WA Frost, The Commodore, Rice Park, The Cathedral, Summit Ave on and on, Saint Paul is not Minneapolis.
