John D'Agata: About a Mountain

Hosted by

In a culture whose major activities include consumption and the production of waste, John D'Agata ponders the adjacency of Las Vegas and a proposed nuclear waste dumping ground. About a Mountain (Norton), a book-length essay —  philosophical, lyrical, dense with fact — is the stunning result.
