One of the year’s more interesting books is Christopher Ingraham’s If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home By Now. A data reporter for the Washington Post, Ingraham became the focus of some viral blowback after publishing a story in 2015 about how federal government-compiled data showed that Red Lake County in Minnesota was supposedly the worst place in America to live.
The residents were not happy. He went to visit, ended up moving his family there, and wrote a book about the experience.
My interview with Ingraham ran in Publishers Weekly.
