Not exactly what you are asking for, but related, is Alistair Cooke's phenomenal collection of thoughts about America and American culture spanning the time from just after WWII to the early 2000s. These were made to be read on the BBC but they stand as excellent personal essays as well. Available in Kindle format at least from

Cooke is decidely pro-American which puts his insights in context but his insights as the outsider seeing the inside are fantastic. (and it's incredibly well written.)
