New Jersey may be the sixth smallest US state, but it packs in the most murderous American city and is considered to be, on a square by square mile basis, the most corrupt. A maze of overlapping and competing municipalities, New Jersey will always provide rich opportunities for political entrenchment, deal making and outright thievery. Featuring contributions from a sparkling list of authors including Jonathan Safran Foer, Joyce Carol Oates and Robert Pinksy, this seminal collection of stories revels in the dark connections between prosperity and desolation.
