Description
"[Greil] Marcus, perhaps America's most imaginative social critic, here attempts to define America as 'a story told more in art than in politics' by yoking together the works of several disparate artists and linking them to three speeches: John Winthrop's 1630 sermon 'A Modell of Christian Charity,' Lincoln's second inaugural, and Martin Luther King's address to the March on Washington. American exceptionalism, Marcus posits, can be traced in stories as wide-ranging as Philip Roth's late Zuckerman novels, the films of David Lynch, the grade-Z film noir Detour, the 'avant garage' music of Pere Ubu singer David Thomas, the poems of Allen Ginsberg, and Steve Darnall and Alex Ross' graphic novel Uncle Sam."Booklist
