What People are Saying About This

Author of She's Not There and Long Black Veil - Jennifer Finney Boylan

"Samantha Allen's America is filled with buoyant queer people in supposedly red states living their lives with resilience and joy. This moving journey starts out in Utah, but Allen's road ultimately takes the reader to the center of her heart. Surprising, inspiring, and thoughtful."
