i've read a couple of great non-fiction books recently by ted conover. one is called 'routes of man' which is about roads and their impact/significance on society, economics, politics, etc. the other is called 'newjack' which is a chronicle of the author spending a year as a corrections officer at a maximum security prison (sing sing). both were fascinating and well written. i've got another of his books on hold at the library, his story of spending a year as a hobo riding the rails....
