Boom Town: The Fantastical Saga of Oklahoma City, Its Chaotic Founding, and the Dream of Becoming a World-Class Metropolis
New York Times Magazine staff writer Sam Anderson's debut chronicles Oklahoma City's growth from sleepy town to metropolis and all the booms and busts in between. Founded on April 22,1899 during the Great Oklahoma Land Run, Oklahoma City is no stranger to violence (its first mayor died of a gunshot wound), chaotic weather (the first photograph of a tornado was taken there), and outsized ambition (the Will Rogers World Airport has no international flights). Even its NBA team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, has had triumphant wins and heartbreaking losses. And in a city filled with interesting people (like Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne), this unpredictable urban history is never boring.
