Publication Date: September 1, 2001
America's trip from self-destruction to wholeness is a romp on the wilder shores of the West Coast. From a dodgy therapist to a silent retreat, America Throne's "aha" moment culminates with, "While we are all busy swimming upstream, the universe is conspiring to take us to something better."
In America the Beautiful, Moon Zappa has taken the broken-heart story and given it a twist all her own through the emotional honesty and edginess of America Throne. Hailed as "brilliant" (Sunday Telegraph Magazine), America the Beautiful is the debut of an unforgettable and unfaltering new voice.

I couldn't put this emotional, hilarious, painfully honest novel down....I laughed my ass off. I loved this book.
The courage, unapologetic honesty, egolessness, and humor of America the Beautiful made me smile from ear to ear....Truly inspiring!
