Methland

Methland by Nick Reding [Bloomsbury USA, $25]

The most popular substance brewed in bathtubs since twenties gin, meth has transformed the wholesome image of small-town America into that of a tweaker's paradise. Avoiding moral panic, Nick Reding traces the rise of crank with portraits of an Iowa town's users, dealers, and influence-resisting citizens, telling a story less about crime than about the death of an iconic way of life. Timothy Hodler
