Colby Buzzell's New Book: Lost in America

My buddy from high school, Colby Buzzell, wrote a really great book called Lost in America. It's Colby at his best, bumping around from town to town and painting a realistic view of everyday America. Colby struggles with his mother's death as he hits the road to Salt Lake City, Cheyenne and Detroit. I found the Detroit section the most interesting and moving.

For those that don't know, Colby wrote a terrific piece for Esquire on Banksy before Banksy was world famous. I also really loved his story in the SF Chronicle called Return to Sender.
