Synopsis of A Space on the Side of the Road: Cultural Poetics in an "Other" America

"With its densely textured scanning of the languages people use to explain their lives without explaining them away, [this book] is by far the best [one] written on ordinary language, pain, and desire in the contemporary United States."--Lauren Berlant, University of Chicago

American Journal of Sociology

[A] subtle and rich ethnography of southwestern West Virginia. From everyday language ... Stewart conjures a dynamic, conflictual portrait of life in the 'hollers' and coal camps.... A Space on the Side of the Road is without a doubt one of the best examples of the new ethnography.
