The Concrete of Tight Places



Product Description

When dictators drive down pristine boulevards, what can a discarded cigar band tell you? Beginning as a critique of the mystifyingly objective rhetoric of travel guides and ending with letters to a woman named Alyssa, The Concrete of Tight Places attempts to find both a language for globalized experience and globalized experiences that produce language. From Egypt to New Jersey, India to Alaska, the hallucinatory tour of the world that results questions what is left when the levels of mediation that separate us from an encounter with people and places are stripped away. With an introduction by Stephen Rodefer.
