Boom Town
Award-winning journalist Sam Anderson’s long-awaited debut is a brilliant, kaleidoscopic narrative of Oklahoma City--a great American story of civics, basketball, and destiny.Oklahoma City was born from chaos. It was founded in a bizarre but momentous "Land Run" in 1889, when thousands of people lined up along the borders of Oklahoma Territory and rushed in at noon to stake their claims. Since then, it has been a city torn between the wild energy that drives its outsized ambitions, and the forces of order that seek sustainable progress. Nowhere was this dynamic better realized than in the drama of the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team's 2012-13 season, when the Thunder's brilliant general manager, Sam Presti, ignited a firestorm by trading future superstar James Harden just days before the first game. Presti's all-in gamble on "the Process"—the patient, methodical management style that dictated the trade as the team’s best hope for long-term greatness—kicked off a pivotal year in the city's history, one that would include pitched battles over urban planning, a series of cataclysmic tornadoes, and the frenzied hope that an NBA championship might finally deliver the glory of which the city had always dreamed.Boom Town announces the arrival of an exciting literary voice. Sam Anderson, former book critic for New York magazine and now a staff writer at the New York Times magazine, unfolds an idiosyncratic mix of American history, sports reporting, urban studies, gonzo memoir, and much more to tell the strange but compelling story of an American city whose unique mix of geography and history make it a fascinating microcosm of the democratic experiment. Filled with characters ranging from NBA superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook; to Flaming Lips oddball frontman Wayne Coyne; to legendary Great Plains meteorologist Gary England; to Stanley Draper, Oklahoma City's would-be Robert Moses; to civil rights activist Clara Luper; to the citizens and public servants who survived the notorious 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, Boom Town offers a remarkable look at the urban tapestry woven from control and chaos, sports and civics.

Boom Town Review

    If Sam Anderson can emotionally invest born and raised Okie-me in the politics and interpersonal relationships of the Thunder, a basketball team I've never watched play a single game (not even on a television screen), then I promise you that he can effortlessly breathe life into my hometown's unique and bizarre history for even the most removed reader. He's just that good...and OKC is just that weird. I would recommend this to anyone, without qualifiers.

    This is a stunningly good piece of civic history here. Sam Anderson does the impossible and makes the arid, droll landscape of Oklahoma City explode with intrigue. ‘Boom Town’ is a wonderful mix of basketball reportage, frontier history and expose of a city in flyover country that really deserves a second look.

    I had mixed feelings about this book. At least the parts that piqued my interest, the passages about the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team, were interesting and I especially enjoyed reading about the angst felt when one of the young stars of the team, James Harden, was going to leave and sign with another team. The writing about Garden's trademark heard was very entertaining.But the rest of the book wasn't doing it for me.

Overall I will give it a passing grade for the basketball but that is all I liked about it.

    There a few versions of Oklahoma City. There's the "bombing" OKC. There's the "flyover state" OKC. Then there's the Thunder version. Sam Anderson has taken Oklahoma City, the OKC Thunder and, really, the state of Oklahoma and combined it into a fantastic story. Shooing back and forth through time, Anderson captures what makes Oklahoma and the Thunder so great.

Yes, it in the middle of the country and yes, it's full of people with very conservative values. But it's also the home of Clara Luper and Ralph Ellison, Wanda Jackson and Garth Brooks. The passion that Oklahomans have for college football, combined and made the OKC Thunder one of the most beloved teams in professional sports. Oklahomas love what is theirs. We love each other and we love Oklahoma.This is a basketball book. This is a history book. This is Oklahoma.

    Boom Town is centered around Oklahoma City and it's strong will and obstinance to survive and remain relevant since the city's time of conception when people first staked out their claims to this city.

This book is a tribute not just to the city but to the people who have made and are still making OKC the kind of city it is today. Sam Anderson, takes his reader, back and forth through a time continuum using history, current events, and sports as the backdrop to tell the story of OKC. He introduces us to men and women who aren't found in our history books like Ms. Clara Luper an African-American woman who desegregated lunch counters and other business establishments during the Civil Rights. Mr. England, the local celebrity, a meteorologist. Scattered throughout Boom Town, Anderson takes the word Boom and plays with the word and its significance to OKC. Starting out with the landrace, how the city rapidly developed into an urban community, over time how the city would lose everything, the OKC bombing, to the tornadoes that devastated the community, to its sports team that was rapidly making a name for itself-the OKC Thunders to the fame of OKC's life-long most popular citizen-Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips. Anderson draws you in through his storytelling. He draws you into the character development of OKC and its people who live in the city and the politics of the city. He takes snippets and shows us the city. Through each page, Anderson is taking us on a ride showing us the city and how it has changed and how it also has stayed stagnant over time and the city's hope to never give up or to never be lost in the background. Boom Town is a fast read and well-deserved. Each word on the page is used without forethought. Each word is used for purpose and meaning. Anderson invokes all emotions throughout the book and leaves you questioning about development and the importance of it but most of all, how does a city continue to thrive without forgetting the concerns of their citizens who are the most impacted by decisions that are being made. How does a city move forward? How does a city progress? In Boom Town, Anderson finds a way without getting lost in the politics by sharing the ups and downs of OKC. I received an early copy of this book for an early review by NetGalley and Crown Publishing. #BoomTown #NetGalley

    What a gun read! A great read for anyone who likes their sociology mixed in with weather, The Oklahoma City Thunder, history, and The Flaming Lips. I had next to no interest in OKC until this book. Anderson brings all of the free range missiles into wide-eyed, seat-of-your-pants narratives that turn this "little old town" into a fascinating panorama of oddities and heart. One thing's for sure, after reading this, you can't call Oklahoma City dull.

Its bigness is only associated with its footprint and its devastating weather. Its NBA basketball team is electrifying mainly to its fanatical fans. So, what makes Sam Anderson’s detailed account of Oklahoma City, “Boom Town,” so readable? It’s all in the writing.Oklahoma City has always been about becoming something. The bizarre land rush of 1889 was filled with wild-eyed optimists who imagined snatching up land that would bring them wealth beyond belief. That was the start of the city’s constant search for promise and order that made it grow like Topsy. But it always stumbled and fell back, over and over, as it tried to grow into the immense shoes it created. It has never quite accomplished that stability, although its city limit footprint is one of the largest in the world. “The Process” is the term used to describe the city’s attempt at a persistent and orderly planning scheme. Mayors, city managers, planning experts, and even the basketball team’s general manger have all extolled “the process” as being the great creator of magnificent schemes aimed at bringing Oklahoma City into world-beating excellence. All have fallen short making the city appear as the clumsy chubby kid trying to dunk a basketball or climb a rope.Sam Anderson uses mind-numbing research and an exciting writing style to chronicle all this energy and industriousness. Through the years many politicians and social scientists have cajoled and convinced the residents to back their schemes. The cycle has gone up and down with huge gains in population and economics, inevitably followed by disasters and fouled plans that return the city to poverty and hubris. Anderson details geography, history, meteorology, and human nature in a gripping narrative style that keeps the reader involved in the story about a municipality that becomes almost human under his touch. He has great insight and information about a myriad of characters that have played a part in this riveting drama. Basketball superstars, oddball musicians, legendary weathermen, dogmatic planners, civil rights activists, and a mad bomber all show up in Anderson’s narrative. This is Sam Anderson’s first book, although he is a staff writer for “The New York Times Magazine.” He captured me with a writing style that was entrancing with its economy and lack of pretentiousness. I became a part of something that perhaps I never thought would be interesting but found to be riveting. He is a joy to read.

Anderson balanced present and past stories of Oklahoma City and all the time showed the boom (and eventual bust) approach to all things. That through line was felt in well researched stories of the creation and growth of the city and also through the more recent chapters about the NBA Thunder team and Wanye Coyne, lead signer of the band The Flaming Lips, amongst others. For a reader like me who hasn't been to central US much and never to Oklahoma, Anderson does an excellent of of creating a desire for me to visit, in spite of Anderson's very clear description of the awful weather, the recent rise in earthquakes, and the general isolation from much of the rest of the US that Oklahoma City feels daily. That's one of the reasons that Anderson's book is so good, his writing draws you into a very unconventional and often despressing city because it's clear that Anderson has an strong affinity for the city and wants his readers to as well. Oklahoma City is like no other major city in the US; it's creation, it's mentality, it's weather beaten history. Sam Anderson's BOOMTOWN paints a clear and realistic picture of Oklahoma City, warts and all. Any reader interesting in finding out about such a rare and wonderful city Oklahoma City reall is would enjoy this book. Thank you to Crown Publishing, Sam Anderson, and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

    Oklahoma City? It's the capital and largest city in Oklahoma. It was the scene of an horrific domestic terrorist bombing in the mid-1990's. It was founded in a land rush and has suffered the same booms and busts as many other primarily energy-based economies have suffered over the years. Today, it's the home of the NBA basketball team. the Thunder, which the city may or may not have poached from their original home in Seattle.

This is the city that American author Sam Anderson has chosen to dissect in has fabulous new book, "Boom Town: The Fantastical Saga of Oklahoma City".Sam Anderson's book consists of many short chapters, written in a certain order. There's one chapter about the NBA basketball team, so important to the city trying to expand their ranking in the list of American cities. That chapter is then followed by one or two about the city's history and social development. Anderson uses this method throughout his book so the book jumps around, but somehow it's not confusing. He's also such a good writer (or he has such a good editor) that there's barely a wasted word or sentence in the book. And that's quite a feat in a work of non-fiction.So, why sit down and read a 400 page book on Oklahoma City? I can't give you a reason other than the book is a great read. I suppose I was interested because I passed through the city on a move from Santa Fe to Chicago and stopped to see the Murrah Building Bombing memorial. As we drove around the city on a sleepy Sunday, we found it was a city with intriguing architecture. I know that after reading Sam Anderson's book, I'd like to return and look at the city through his eyes.

I was gobsmacked; it is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's been described by other reviewers as brilliant and kaleidoscopic. Yes and yes. The book is indeed about Oklahoma City, the city that desperately wants to be world class but fails at it with regularity. Their airport, for example, is named for their native son, humorist, newspaper columnist, and social commentator, Will Rogers. Will Rogers World Airport, this grandiose title even though no international flights originate from or arrive there. The author and award-winning journalist, Sam Anderson, has a delicious sense of humor. He bounces back and forth between Oklahoma City (OKC) history; a grab bag of odd local characters, both living and dead; and the pride of the city, the basketball team they stole from Seattle, the Thunder (formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics). [I will write a longer review for the Internet Review of Books] Bottom line: do yourself a favor and read it.

Despite that this book pulls you in and gives a visage into the formation of state founded on chaos and parts of the Old West and plains that one would expect to find.

It does an excellent job of looking at Oklahoma’s rise from dirt plot to frontier town to midsize city and how it tries to reinvent itself in later America. The Oklahoma City bombing is covered well and some of the most interesting pieces relate to stories of a local Oklahoma weatherman and the threat of tornadoes to the surrounding area and city. This book spends a lot of time on the Oklahoma Thunder basketball team trying to elate it back to parts of history and is mildly successful in doing so. The one part of the book that just drags on is the story’s of the Flaming Lips front man. Overall though an enjoyable read and one that puts a perspective on a place that not many people think about in a fresh and entertaining way. If you are also a basketball fan you would probably bump this up to a 4 star rating but for me it was a little too much basketball.

    A fun, unique, and compulsively readable history of a city that I'd never given much thought to. I went from vaguely being aware of Oklahoma City to having deep feelings for the city and its inhabitants. The framing device -- switching between the story of the OKC Thunder and its meteoric rise and the creation of OKC -- was incredibly effective.

    This is narrative non-fiction at its best.

He has managed to make the city feel like a literary character.I received a copy of this book free from the publisher for review.
