American Salvage by Bonnie Jo Campbell

Discussion Leader: Robert Braggs, III

Finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in Fiction

“In American Salvage, Bonnie Jo Campbell picks through the ravages of a small-town America gutted by shifting demographics, new technology, and methamphetamine. Eschewing nostalgia or bitterness, she leads with her curiosity, using canny observation and sensuous prose to coax the reader into dark, strange, primordial territory.” National Book Award Judges’ Citation

Robert Braggs is a native Cincinnatian and is a staffer at the United States Senate. In his private time he enjoys culture, photography, and fitness.
