Author talk: Brian Alexander, author of "Glass House" @ Gund Gallery |  |  |

Author Brian Alexander talks about his new book “Glass House: The 1 Percent Economy and the Shattering of an All-American Town.” The Kirkus Review describes “Glass House” as “a devastating and illuminating book that shows how a city and a country got where they are and how difficult it can be to reverse course.”

In “Glass House,” Alexander recounts the decline of his “all-American” hometown, Lancaster, Ohio, through the effect of predatory finance on its once prosperous glassware industry.

Brian Alexander is a California-based writer who has published in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Science, Esquire, and Glamour. He was contributing editor at Wired and is a regular contributor to NBCnews.com and Outside Magazine.
