MAP: The Most Famous Book Set in Ohio

This map from our pals over at Business Insider shows the most famous books set in each state. 

Ohio, apparently, is most known for the 1987 novel The Broom of the System by David Foster Wallace.

Via BI: 

In Foster Wallace's slightly altered view of Ohio in 1990, we follow our heroine, Lenore Stonecipher Beadsman, a telephone operator/secretary who manages a job with barely any purpose, a relationship with her much-older boss, and the task of finding her decrepit grandmother who, along with 25 other residents of the Shaker Heights Nursing Home, have managed to disappear without a trace.

If you haven't yet read this book, pick it up now at your neighborhood bookstore. Then work your way across America with these other popular reads.
