Summary and Info
As Drift uncovers the hidden past of this southwestern mecca--a history inhabited by the likes of Emma Goldman, Henry Miller, Mission Indians, and Theosophists--it captures the underlying emptiness and unease of San Diego circa 2000. Blake plays the postmodern fl?neur in a theme-park city, drifting with the poetic eye of Baudelaire and the critical sensibilities of Walter Benjamin and the Situationist avant-garde. Depicting the sex, drugs, and death found in the borderlands, author Jim Miller portrays a city where cultures sometimes clash but more often pass one another almost wholly unaffected.
