About this title


Red M&Ms and Moses, AM radio and Thomas Aquinas, the Black Plague and John Cage, William of Ockham and Sonny Stitt--all are encompassed in this playful, delighful, virtuosic, and deadpan collage that juxtaposes a contemporary couple's weekend in Los Angeles with a capsule history of Western thought.


Los Angeles, with its glamour-rama personae, endless jam of freeways and wasteland of neighborhoods, seems at odd contrast with the interests of a medievalist, but here he is. A weekend of postmodern art shows, visits with friends who make rock videos, and other slices of Southern California style. He makes the mistake of trying to figure it all out: the rise of Western culture and its demise, religion, art, television commercials. A perceptive and quirky book that is as hip as it is intellectual.
