Description - Famous Americans by Loren Goodman

Eclectic and bizarre, this collection of poetry takes the reader on a rollercoaster of a ride through the absurdities of American pop culture. Employing a variety of forms (from epistolary to script to interview and beyond), this work proves to be as much about exploring frameworks as it is about examining the lives of famous and not-so-famous Americans. Goodman questions our concept of what it means to be an icon: he disrupts our assumptions, creating an alternative universe in which nothing remains sacred. This title is the winner of the "Yale Series of Younger Poets" competition for 2003.
