The Atlas: 8 - Vollmann, William T

Arranged as a huge thematic palindrome, the pieces in the Atlas showcase Vollmann's ability to build unusual structures, sonnets composed of stories instead of words. Richly imagined and filled with his trademark flights of incandescent prose, it is his most accessible and the characteristic work to date.
