Have you read the book representing your state?

Or, make this a reading list and read yourself across the United States. Brooklyn Magazine recently published this article, complete with map.

It’s no surprise the book selected for Utah is The Executioner’s Song by Norman Mailer. I’ve never read it, but I should. Parts of the movie were filmed only two blocks from my childhood home in Provo, UT. Some of the kids in my neighborhood even got out of school while they were filming in their neighbor’s house. Not to mention, my friend’s mother dated the guy… creepy!
