Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Open All Night, Ken Miller's images and William T. Vollmann's unflinching reportage combine to present an unsettling and potently authentic document of our time. Imbued with a hyperreal poignancy, Miller's photographs reveal an America peopled by outsiders - skinheads, electroshock patients, addicts, prostitutes - the same people real and imagined, who inhabit the novels of William T. Vollmann. In tandem they present a stark yet human landscape in images and words of a world they both know intimately.

Book News Annotation:

Miller's black & white photos are captioned by quotes from works of fiction by William T. Vollmann. His subjects here are street people, prostitutes, skinheads, and others of America's underclass; and his gaze is unflinching.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
