“John D’Agata is an alchemist who changes trash into purest gold.” —Guy Davenport, Harper’sJohn D’Agata journeys the endless corridors of America’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.
