Best-selling author Laura Pedersen takes a humorous and heartfelt look at the rise, fall, and rebirth of Buffalo, New York.
Laura Pedersen is the author of ten books, including Beginner’s Luck and Buffalo Gal. She was the youngest columnist for The New York Times and, prior to that, the youngest person to have a seat on the American Stock Exchange. Honored as one of Ten Outstanding Young Americans by President Clinton, Pedersen currently lives in New York City, but also maintains a place in Amherst.
Although rife with injokes for Buffalo locals, making it a mustread for East Coasters, Buffalo Unbound abounds with entertainment, along with many riveting facts, for those who have never experienced the area firsthand. Pedersen's essays are love letters to her favorite cityseemingly penned by a cross between anthropologist Margaret Mead and the likes of Dave Barry. Terry Shannon, Book Reporter.com
