A derelict antiques and scrap metal business in Owls Head, Maine,
is the setting of this multi-layered word-portrait of its owner,
William Buckminster, proprietor of an extraordinary collection of
discarded and decaying items, no-longer-functioning remnants of
previous lives. Buckminster's world, which includes both his
vaunted talents in the local pool halls and his sure knowledge of
the seemingly endless number of fascinating objects from his vast
supply, are inspiration for Purcell's carefully crafted meditation
on collecting and entropy, and the signals both send to those of us
willing to pay attention. 34 duotone footnote photographs.
