The National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Early Occult Memory Systems of the Lower Midwest presents a "verbal cinema" of America that utilizes dramatic monologues and other forms to explore themes ranging from the elegiac to the comic, in a volume that centers on "Trilogy," a three-part work in the voice of a circus performer.
