On Becoming Americanby Ted Morgan
A Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, Morgan's experience illustrates
ON BECOMING AMERICAN is an inquiry into American identity--what it is that sets Americans apart from the rest of the world. Ted Morgan discussess America through the prism of his own experience: he was a French aristocrat, Sanche de Gramont, who became Ted Morgan and an American citizen in 1977.
A Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, Morgan's experience illustrates why immigration is central to the American experience. He sees us with fresh eyes, and writes with humor about our passion for fast cars, fast food and the freedom we take for granted.
"An antidote to facile putdowns of America. Morgan makes the case that America is the greatest success story the world has ever known. Not bad for someone who isn't even running for office!" (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
