Books Info:

Seven American Deaths and Disasters free pdf In Seven American Deaths and Disasters, Kenneth Goldsmith transcribes words used by people describing events they had never prepared themselves to witness, as they unfurl. In doing so, he reveals an extraordinarily rich linguistic panorama of passionate description. Taking its name from the Warhol paintings of the same name, Goldsmith recasts the mundane as the iconic, creating a sense of prose poems that encapsulate both the Kennedy assassinations, that of John Lennon, the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, 9/11 and the death of Michael Jackson.
