American True Stories: Lynzsea Sky
Michael Rozek is back. His first work in more than a decade, Lynzsea Sky, is a revolutionary work in part because it is almost all done in dialogue.
Rozek's work redefines nonfiction by eliminating the third person narrative, stripping the text of writerly ego and allowing the subject of the book to speak directly to the reader.
Rozek's American True Stories series of books uniquely reveals America in the early part of the 21st Century. In his first book, Lynzsea Sky, we hear from a twentysomething female college student. The conversations between Rozek and Lynzsea make you see young American women with new eyes. Her simple tale reveals painstaking truths about family, society and a culture that seems to do more to tear apart youthful lives than nurture them.
