* FEAST OF EXCESS, by George Cotkin
Written in a lively and accessible style, Feast of Excess traces in brief chapters the history of the New Sensibility in America. The book opens with John Cage in 1952, experimenting with an excess of minimalism in his musical piece of silence, 4' 33" and in his chaotic, maximalist work Theater Piece, No.
