Owls Head: On the Nature of Lost Things
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungA derelict antiques and scrap metal business in Owls Head, Maine, is the setting of this multi-layered word-portrait of its owner, William Buckminster, proprietor of an extraordinary collection of discarded and decaying items, no-longer-functioning remnants of previous lives. Buckminster's world, which includes both his vaunted talents in the local pool halls and his sure knowledge of the seemingly endless number of fascinating objects from his vast supply, are inspiration for Purcell's carefully crafted meditation on collecting and entropy, and the signals both send to those of us willing to pay attention. 34 duotone footnote photographs.
PortraitRosamond Purcell is the author of Bookworm and Owls Head. She lives in Medford, Massachusetts.
