Motel Of The Mysteries

"It is the year 4022; all of the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of detritus from a catastrophe that occurred back in 1985.

"Imagine, then, the excitement that Howard Carson, an amateur archeologist at best, experienced when in crossing the perimeter of an abandoned excavation site he felt the ground give way beneath him and found himself at the bottom of a shaft, which, judging by the DO NOT DISTURB sign hanging from an archaic doorknob, was clearly the entrance to a still-sealed burial chamber.

"In David Macauley’s depictions of this dramatic discovery, the fact that Carson’s conclusions are wholly erroneous only adds to the wonderment of the find and the insights that we are given of that peculiar age.

"The present volume will delight readers of all ages."


David Macauley
