Garden City, New York: The Dial Press, 1985. FIRST EDITION. Paperback. GOOD PLUS. The authors are a journalist-photographer team who captured the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction in 1990 for their book: AND THEIR CHILDREN AFTER THEM, which was conceived as a follow-up to Walker Evans and James Agee's famous photo-essay entitled Let us Now Praise Famous Men. In JOURNEY TO NOWHERE, the team traveled throughout the U.S. by car, by rail, and by thumb, beginning in Youngstown hoping to connect with the new disenfranchised, out-of-work/out-of-a-home/out-of options former middle class. They write: "To understand the future of America and what causes formerly middle-class people to wind up living on the street, we would have to understand the decline of the industrial core of the nation". Shelfwear and corner curl. Powerful prose and magnificent photographs, eerily prescient about how things would progress for the worse, a quarter-century later. Scarce.
