It takes a special person to like "Gross America." Fortunately, among my friends and family, there are many who will enjoy Richard Faulk's semi-encyclopedic book about such places as Leila's Hair Museum in Independence, Mo. (which focuses on the Victorian practice of hair mourning art), the waste lagoons of eastern North Carolina and a statue to the Donner Party in Truckee, Calif. Well, I suppose it's a matter of taste — the book, I mean.
