    The wasteland represents the path of the rebel, outlaw or outcast. It is a life on the fringe of society, one’s family, one’s career, etc.; beyond the edge of what is considered appropriate and normal. It is an attempt to flourish by rejecting and escaping the village (into sex, drugs, rock n’roll, etc.).   Nor does the book’s appeal come from its plot, a boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl tale gussied up in post-apocalyptic rags. It’s a bridge-and-tunnel romance, except that .

    Across the world's largest garbage dump, near Rio de Janeiro, the pickers crawl with their bags and buckets, seeking treasures that can be recycled: plastics and metals, mostly, but anything of value. From the air, they look like ants. You would assume they are the wretched of the earth, but those we meet in "Waste Land" seem surprisingly cheerful. They lead hard lives but understandable ones. T.S. Eliot, the quiet, gray figure who gave new meaning to English-language poetry, died Jan. 5, at his home in London. He was 76 years old. Eliot was an American, born in St. Louis.

      The Waste Land has seen many many stage interpretations over the of the most iconic is that of Irish actress Fiona was her performance, captured now for posterity as a downloadable app, which helped inspire Austrian actor Christopher Domig’s one-man performance of Eliot’s lines at the upcoming New York International Fringe Festival—a collaboration with his. I bought this record used back in the 80s and later realized the cover is from the 12" single but the vinyl is the Wasteland Limited Edition EP. Not sure how.

Heaven has fallen, leaving behind a scarred visage of the world. The lands are now crawling with all manner of vile creatures: demons, werewolves, vampires, and other unimaginable horrors, all competing to control their own little niche in this new world.

Humanity’s only defense against such evil are the hunters; men and women who stand face 5/5(5). Starting the book with Stephen King's, "The End of the Whole Mess" sets a perfect pace for the rest of the book and is a story I have loved for years being a 'Constant Reader' from way back.

Every story is short enough to read in a single lunch break which is a huge plus for me. Bite sized little chunks let me pace myself without being bogged /5().
