Monuments (Random House, 2007). Nonfiction narratives that examine why and how we commemorate the past. Includes classic American landmarks, such as the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore, as well as unconventional monuments that are changing the way we think about commemoration—the AIDS Quilt, a traveling memorial made for the people by the people, and the haunting lyrics of Bruce Springsteen’s “Empty Sky,” an intangible remembrance of September 11th. The cover is deeply sculpted to evoke carved stone and the tactile experience of running one’s fingertips over a memorial—the most ancient form of homage. (272 pp, 250 duotone photographs).
