“All the King’s Men” by Robert Penn Warren

All the King’s Men is such a uniquely American book. From the endless stretches of highway, to the imperative to flee westward, to our complicated relationships with the past, to politics, to the various philosophies–what you don’t know can’t hurt you; everything is, in the end, connected; the end of man is knowledge–practically every line of this novel is a revelation about life, and particularly about life in America. Reading this book changed the way I think about the world, and that’s because in it, I recognized myself and I recognized the place I live.
