Product Description
<div> <b>“If <i>Catcher in the Rye</i> has lost its raw clout for recent generations of Internet-suckled American youth, here is a coming-of-age novel to replace it.”</b> –<i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review)<br>  </div><div> The first days of summer: Jim Praley is home from college, ready to unlock Tulsa's secrets. He drives the highways. He forces himself to get out of his car and walk into a bar. He's invited to a party. And there he meets Adrienne Booker; Adrienne rules Tulsa, in her way. A high-school dropout with a penthouse apartment, she takes a curious interest in Jim. Through her eyes, he will rediscover his hometown: its wasted sprawl, the beauty of its late nights, and, at the city's center, the unsleeping light of its skyscrapers.</div><div>             In the tradition of Michael Chabon's <i>The Mysteries of Pittsburgh</i>, <i>A Map of Tulsa</i> is elegiac, graceful, and as much a story about young love as it is a love letter to a classic American city.</div><br>
