In Words in Air, Thomas O'Gorman takes us on a journey deep into the "idea" of America. We follow two generations of journalists, from the 1920s to the present, who bear witness equally to American grandeur and high life, as well as American corruption, drugs and terrorism ... the Great Depression, two World Wars and other American sorrows, seemingly without end. Words in Air is ringing reportage from two generations who saw things not as they were drawn but as they were, accepting no excuse nor offering one . . . Words in Air lays open America, which some say is only a place in the mind. America the Myth, whose shoes are without laces, whose raincoat is torn. America, a one-armed war hero on a train platform, his empty sleeve blowing gently in the breeze. Words in Air will gift you with comfort and laughter, amusement and gladness. And it will unnerve you, make you turn away, empty, looking for that other place.
