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.
