Journalist Paul Middlehoff of Die Zeit was 16 when he packed his bags in Germany and set off as a foreign exchange student to the United States. Hoping for New York or Florida, Middlehoff wound up in Oxford, Alabama instead. Ten years later, he revisited the area and tracked down former students and faculty to see what became of them. Middlehoff paints the picture of an altered landscape affected by economic crisis and drug abuse, a region altogether shaken by time and space.
