The New Sins
I found a copy of this at The Boring Store, and that's pretty appropriate, I think. Really, I was pretty disappointed. I expected more from David Byrne. The fundamental idea of the book is to show that virtues can easily be masks for unhealthy or sinful behavior. But I found the whole thing shallow, adolescent, and boring. I probably would have thought it was cool when I was in ninth grade, though. It does have some nice photographic work, though.
