Pedro Venegas Venegas desde Rosario, Cuba
This book is a well-executed experiment. John Freyer sold everything he owned on eBay, from the salt shaker in his cupboard to the shirt off his back. On one level, it's interesting to see how much a person's life is worth, sort of like a living estate sale. Is the value of life's possessions greater than the sum of its parts? Once the items were sold, Freyer traveled across the country to meet with the buyers in person to learn how the object they purchased fits into their lives. It's a literally and figuratively colorful book, and I like to think that under it all, it has a pro-purge message.
