All the King’s Men
by Robert Penn Warren

Field-Tested by James Norton

in Door County, Wisconsin

There are two types of great summer books: effervescent fluffballs that melt on your brain like cotton candy, and all-consuming epics that hold you spellbound for days at a time. This Robert Penn Warren masterpiece is one of the latter. The work unfolds with majesty and drama as Louisiana provides a sultry backdrop for its tangled tales of innocence lost. With a week to kill in Door County, Wisconsin, All the King’s Men is just the book to complement an endless procession of bratwurst, Leinenkugel’s, and sunshine.

James Norton lives in Minneapolis and has worked as a Producer for “The Al Franken Show” and as the Middle East editor for The Christian Science Monitor. He is currently a freelance food writer.
