Greatest Hits: An Anthology in Four Volumes

By Daniel Thomas MacInnes

Art & photography, Computing & internet, General non-fiction, Music & musicians, Sports | Paperback, eBook


Greatest Hits is “An Anthology in Four Volumes” that examines, dissects and satirizes every angle of the pop culture universe: film and television, animation and live-action cinema, rock and jazz, vinyl records, video games, politics and daily life. Writer and artist Daniel Thomas MacInnes delivers his signature style of sharp wit, biting sarcasm, warm nostalgia, and the search for the cultural threads that bring us all together. In Greatest Hits, MacInnes presents, in a incisive collection of essays and personal stories, the trivial absurdity and profound brilliance of modern life. These include denouncing the media circus surrounding Michael Jackson's untimely death ("Now Watch the Thriller Zombies Chew On the Corpse"), championing the genius of 1970s Miles Davis ("Get Up With It"), conjuring childhood memories of video games ("Seven Cities of Gold"), and celebrating the animated movies of Studio Ghibli ("My Neighbor Totoro"). Like everyone's favorite “greatest hits” albums, this book is a fitting portrait of the artist, and a perfect distillation of a singular and irresistible literary voice.
