… Dazzling essays from flyover country: A review of Meghan O'Gieblyn. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
There are two conditions Meghan O'Gieblyn can't escape: Christianity and Midwesternness.I didn’t grow up in the Midwest, but I have spent a good of bit of time there and am very fond of it. But I have never felt “an existential dizziness, a sense that the rest of the world is moving while you remain still” while there. Also, my experience of Christianity is not that of an Evangelical. So I don’t quite get the reviewer’s enthusiasm.
