Rising Up and Rising Down by William T. Vollmann  DEC 15 2002

I went to a Dave Eggers reading/signing a few weeks back and he told us about a forthcoming book from McSweeney's by William T. Vollmann called Rising Up and Rising Down. The book clocks in at a daunting 3,500 pages spread out over 6 volumes and chronicles the history of human violence. The length of the book guarantees I'll never read it, but I love that meticulous labors of love like this are able to get published. The completeness offered (I would assume) by a book like Rising Up and Rising Down is rarely seen these days.
