State Book?

If it didn't require 49 predictions, I'd suggest a betting pool for this, a kind of historical Miss America for books. Can Iowa not be Field of Dreams? Does Jack London own Alaska? Does God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater spend enough time in Indiana to qualify? One book for New York?!

Has anyone read an intensely regional American novel recently?
