Medium Cool is a weekly series related to popular culture, mostly film, TV, and books, with some music and games thrown in. We hope it’s a welcome break from the anger, hate, and idiocy we see almost daily from the other side in the political sphere.
Arguments welcomed, opinions respected, fools un-suffered. We’re here every Sunday at 7 pm.
Some recent On the Road posts have taken us to New Zealand and Iceland, and other amazingly beautiful places. And of course I think the Paris series could have gone on forever.
I know there are novels that feel like Boston, and novels that feel like Chicago. Are there books that capture the feel of living in New Zealand, or Iceland, or Paris, or Ireland or even a small town like Mendocino? Books that make you feel like you know what a totally different life would be like?
To Kill A Mockingbird made me feel like I was there.
