GREIL MARCUS
talk & booksigning for "The Shape of Things to Come: Prophecy and the American Voice"
Tuesday, August 21 at 7 pm

In "The Shape of Things to Come: Prophecy and the American Voice," critic and author Greil Marcus traces the nation’s fable of self-invention from its earliest Puritan beginnings to its successive retellings in the work of diverse contemporary artists. The book – just out in paperback - is an exhilarating and kaleidoscopic investigation of American identity where past and the present merge in the most extraordinary and surprising ways.

Greil Marcus is the author of nine previous books, including "Lipstick Traces," "Mystery Train," and "The Dustbin of History." He lives in Berkeley, California. “Greil Marcus is the Lew Archer of cultural criticism.” – Michael Chabon
