Legends of the Slow Explosion: Eleven Modern Lives (Paperback)
Literary Nonfiction. Multi-genre literary master Baron Wormser's new book is about people from the mid-twentieth century whose lives created ripple effects beyond their individuality. Including electrifying portraits of Rosa Parks, Hannah Arendt, Miles Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Willem de Kooning, among others, these are not conventional biographical essays. Wormser has created a molten, multi-dimensional prose that brings a reader into the visceral presence of these human catalysts.
