In these refreshingly bold, creative, and incisive essays, John D'Agata journeys the endless corridors of American's myriad halls of fame and faithfully reports on what he finds there. In a voice all his own, he brilliantly maps his terrain in lists, collage, and ludic narratives. From Martha Graham to the Flat Earth Society, from the brightest light in Vegas to the "outsider artist" Henry Darger, D'Agata's obsessions are as American as they are contemporary.ContentsRound TripMartha Graham, Audio Description OfFlat Earth Map: An EssayHall of Fame: An Essay About the Ways in Which We MatterNotes toward the making of a whole human being . . .Collage History of Art, by Henry DargerAnd There Was Evening and There Was MorningNotes
