Michael Eastman is a beautiful photographer. He's a neighbor of William Gass, in St. Louis, and the two of them have certain qualities in common: technical virtuosity, stunning intelligence, and a gift for synthesizing facts and ideas. I published many of Eastman's photos in The Georgia Review when I edited that journal (including the cover photo of this book) and fell in love with Eastman's work during that process. Highly recommended for anyone, but especially for fans of rich photography, and aficionados of what Greil Marcus calls "the weird old America."
