Being Elsewhere derives from Professor Sisk's personal experiences, which draws us back in time to the building of the Grand Coulee Dam in the late twenties and to the life of a caddy in the era of the Great Depression. The geography stretches as far as Guyana, London, Paris, and Venice. His ideas travel from rooming to caddying, from recent Roman ruminations to popular-pulse-taking in Paris....
The "elsewheres" of the author's mind are scattered broadly: war and its generals, society and its celebrities, love and fear, couture and fanaticism, hope and acceptance....
Traveling through the life of John Sisk, we make an eclectic humanist's journey toward an understanding of our history.
