Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
This grunge north Jersey version of John McPhee's classic "The Pine Barrens" celebrates the "natural (and unnatural) beauties of a wasteland" ("San Francisco Chronicle").

Review:
"The 20th century has done its worse by the Meadowlands, but as Sullivan superbly demonstrates, there is life in the old landscape yet, a friskiness that shakes off into the clayey muck the hellspawn of progress."

Kirkus, 01/15/1998

Review:
"What a tremendous feat of the imagination! To celebrate the natural (and unnatural) beauties of a wasteland."

Howard Junker, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 05/10/1998

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Imagine a grunge nort Jersey version of John McPhee s classic The Pine Barrens and you ll get some idea of the idiosyncratic, fact-filled, and highly original work that is Robert Sullivan s The Meadowlands. Just five miles west of New York City, this vilified, half-developed, half-untamed, much dumped-on, and sometimes odiferous tract of swampland is home to rare birds and missing bodies, tranquil marshes and a major sports arena, burning garbage dumps and corporate headquarters, the remains of the original Penn Station--and maybe, just ,maybe, of the late Jimmy Hoffa. Robert Sullivan proves himself to be this fragile yet amazingly resilient region s perfect expolorer, historian, archaeologist, and comic bard. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780385495080
