The Sprawl by Jason Diamond

For a long time the suburbs were where art happens in spite of: notwithstanding the conformity, the emptiness, the sameness. Time and again, the story is one in all gems formed below pressure and that resentment of the suburbs is the key element for innovative transcendence. But what if, opposite to that, the suburb has clearly been an incubator for surprisingly American art, as definitely and as truly as in every other cultural hothouse? Mixing private experience, cultural reportage, and history while rejecting clichés and pieties and these essays stretch throughout the united states in an effort to reveal that this uniquely American milieu deserves every other look.
