Everything That Rises : A Book of Convergences
Pub Group West, January 2006. Oversized Clothbound. Used - Very Good / No Jacket As Issued. Item #258626
From a cuneiform tablet to a Chicago prison, from the depths of the cosmos to the text on our T-shirts, Lawrence Weschler finds strange connections wherever he looks. The farther one travels (through geography, through art, through science, through time), the more everything seems to converge -- at least, it does if you're looking through Weschler's giddy, brilliant eyes. Weschler combines his keen insights into art, his years of experience as a chronicler of the fall of Communism, and his triumphs and failures as the father of a teenage girl into a series of essays sure to illuminate, educate, and astound.
Bound in deep blue cloth with silver lettering and a color pictoral strip. Very minor shelf wear.
