Halls of Fame by John D'Agata

Book Description

John D'Agata journeys the endless corridoors of America's myriad halls of fame and faithfully reports on what he finds there. In a voice all of his own, he brilliantly maps his terrain in lists, collage and ludic narratives. With topics ranging from Martha Graham to the Flat Earth Society, Halls of Fame hovers on the brink: between prose and poetry, between deep seriousness and high comedy, between the subject and the self.
