Description The Shape of Things to Come de Greil Marcus:

In The Shape of Things to Come, Greil Marcus untangles the story of America's covenant with itself -and the idealism, horror, eloquence and violence integral to its founding narratives. In a thrilling account that moves back and forth between culture and politics, and with deep dives into the work of a few artists who strikingly dramatize the challenge America poses to each of its citizens - Herman Melville and Raymond Chandler, Philip Roth and David Lynch, Bill Pullman and Sheryl Lee, David Thomas of Pere Ubu and Allen Ginsberg - Marcus captures a story that is constantly being remade and retold, in voices at once paranoid and sardonic, inspiring and terrifying. Greil Marcus was born in San Francisco in 1945. He is the author of Mystery Train, Invisible Republic, Lipstick Traces and Double Trouble, and the editor of Lester Bangs's Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung. In 1998 he curated the exhibition '1948' at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Marcus writes a bi-weekly column for salon.com and a monthly column for Interview. He was described by John Rockwell in the New York Times as 'a writer of rare perception and a genuinely innovative thinker'. Greil Marcus lives in Berkeley, California.
