The New Sins/Los Nuevos Pecados

£22.00

Product description

text in English and Spanish

corners and spine edges bumped, otherwise very good condition

David Byrne, ex-Talking Heads front-man and multi-talented artist, presents a brilliant and very funny updating of the Seven Deadly Sins. In a beautifully-packaged little book that is the size and shape of a portable Bible, Byrne mischievously updates the biblical notions of sin for a contemporary readership, so elucidating los nuevos pecados - 'the new sins'. Amongst his shortlist, Byrne controversially includes Hope, Generosity, Altruism, Cleanliness and Contentment. His writing is witty and engaging, full of shrewd perceptions into the ways we fool ourselves about the rectitude of our motives in life. The book is designed by Dave Eggers, author of the bestseller A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, whose contribution underlines the playful quality of this delightful and highly desirable tome.
