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!
