The Devil's Snake Curve

  • "The Devil's Snake Curve offers an alternative American history, in which colonialism, jingoism, capitalism, and faith are represented by baseball. Personal and political, it twines Japanese internment camps with the Yankees; Walmart with the Kansas CityRoyals; and facial hair patterns with militarism, Guantanamo, and the modern security state.

He has been an urban anthropologist at the Field Museum and now works at Graywolf Press. "--
