Product Description

Tetris and Gorbachev, Magritte and Einstein, Cuneiform tablets and Chicago prisons, lips over Paris and clouds under LA - everywhere he looks, Pulitzer Prize finalist Lawrence Weschler encounters unlikely alignments and beguiling resonances. This generously illustrated phantasmagoria compiles his joyous investigations (shades of Nietzsche's 'joyful wisdom'?) into a compelling set of kinships, 'revealing Pollock in the stars, Rothko on the moon, and themissing links - between neurons and websites, fathers and daughters, war crimes and windmills' - hidden in the open until discovered. Image Credits. Illus. 237p. Winner of the National Book Critics Award for Criticism 2006
