    PDF/EPUB About a Mountain PDF à About a Epub / Î nessville.me Î about epub, mountain kindle, About a book, About a Mountain ePUBUpdate 2162012 Wow I just read this Slate article about John D'Agata and his fact checker Apparently they had heated debates over whether facts matter D'Agata throws the word 'art' around like some trump card and was generally acting like an asshole I don't disagree with his point facts can be changed in the service of art However I don't think D'Agata can justify that what he wrote is art I read the essay in uestion it's actually the last chapter of this here book and I would say that he didn't change facts in the service of art but in the service of sensationalism Besides his writing style is atrocious I have no problem with other artists fudging the truth when they are actually making good art Ryszard Kapuściński Geoff Dyer Gontran de Poncis etc Or filmmakers Herz

    PDF/EPUB About a Mountain PDF à About a Epub / Î nessville.me Î about epub, mountain kindle, About a book, About a Mountain ePUBIt's hard to make any criticism or comment regarding About A Mountain without feeling like that reaction has been anticipated by and even included in the book already One of the texts primary arguments is that everything from atomic storage facilities to attempts at communication inevitably corrodes and fails given time So to call this ambitious attempt to tell the untellable story of Yucca Mountain a failure is redundant because instead of that impossible it offers a collection of facts and figures untether

    PDF/EPUB About a Mountain PDF à About a Epub / Î nessville.me Î about epub, mountain kindle, About a book, About a Mountain ePUBWhile this is technically a book about the proposed nuclear waste storage site at Yucca Mountain which has never housed the waste and whose funding was pretty much axed in April 2011 it's really a book about the failures of communication D'Agata presents a litany of examples such as how he gets the run around when he starts asking how anyone came up with the 10000 year figure for when the waste will be less dangerous or how no one can come up with a set of danger symbols that can be put on a sign that will make sense 10000 years from now When he signs on to be a co

    PDF/EPUB About a Mountain PDF à About a Epub / Î nessville.me Î about epub, mountain kindle, About a book, About a Mountain ePUBThis is a brilliant book I don't like to throw a term like that around too easily but this book blew me away On the surface it's a book about the controversy surrounding the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste depository but it ends up being about so so much No surprise that D'Agata is a fan of the lyric essay and also that he started out as a poet because this book is as much prose poetry as it is investigative reporting Don't get me wrong It has plenty of investigation in it In fact D'Agata obviously did a mammoth amount of research for this book consulting a
