Two-time Pulitzer finalist HANK STUEVER pays loving homage to America's soft, strange underbelly in OFF RAMP: ADVENTURES AND HEARTBREAK IN THE AMERICAN ELSEWHERE (Henry Holt). The pieces, some previously published while Stuever was writing for the Austin American-Statesman and the Albuquerque Tribune and others from his current gig at the Washington Post , betray an affinity for oddball subject matter, like a discount funeral home in Austin or an auction of the abandoned contents of self-storage units. Stuever launches into smart and funny flights of fancy around each, a keen tour guide to places we've passed but never fully appreciated.
