Neck Deep and Other Predicaments is an innovative and engaging nonfiction debut by "an original new voice" (Publishers Weekly) and the winner of the 2006 Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize

In this sparkling nonfiction debut, Ander Monson uses unexpectedly nonliterary forms—the index, the Harvard Outline, the mathematical proof—to delve into an equally surprising mix of obsessions: disc golf, the history of mining in northern Michigan, car washes, topology, and more. He reflects on his outsider experience at an exclusive Detroit-area boarding school in the form of a criminal history and invents a new form as he meditates on snow.
