We tend to think of dominos as standing the tiles on end and then tipping the first one over, toppling into the second, which falls into the third until finally all the dominoes have fallen. In 2008 the first of many financial dominos began falling. Many were worried and looked to Washington for leadership. Instead, we saw only politics-as-usual. But as 2009 and 2010 unfolded, it became too benign to suggest our stricken economy was simply toppled dominos. It was more accurate to describe our condition as an economic “train wreck.” The financial chaos as a result of the crisis was heightened by an extraordinary government intervention to triage the shattered economy. Many feared, with justification, that we may be teetering on the brink of this generation's Great Depression. The near-death experience the U.S. economy has suffered forced Americans to turn inward and question our leaders. Our worries have multiplied. Our free market system and ultimately the “American Dream” itself now seem more vulnerable than ever. More importantly, we doubt ourselves and our leaders and long for our life-before. This is a book that chronicles the unfolding disaster of our nation's financial “train wreck.” For two crucial years, Kevin Clark had broadcast financial analysis that became a play-by-play of the economic collapse. Now, with hindsight, he revisits recent history and brings what he calls a “Main Street” perspective of this most critical moment in the modern life of America.

Why can't we look away? Whether we admit it or not, we're fascinated by evil. Dark fantasies, morbid curiosities, Schadenfreude: As conventional wisdom has it, these are the symptoms of our wicked side, and we succumb to them at our own peril. But we're still compelled to look whenever we pass a grisly accident on the highway, and there's no slaking our thirst for gory entertainments like horror movies and police procedurals. What makes these spectacles so irresistible? In Everyone Loves a Good Train Wreck, the scholar Eric G. Wilson sets out to discover the source of our attraction to the caustic, drawing on the findings of biologists, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers, theologians, and artists. A professor of English literature and a lifelong student of the macabre, Wilson believes there's something nourishing in darkness. "To repress death is to lose the feeling of life," he writes. "A closeness to death discloses our most fertile energies." His examples are legion, and startling in their diversity. Citing everything from elephant graveyards and Susan Sontag's On Photography to the Tiger Woods sex scandal and Steel Magnolias, Wilson finds heartening truths wherever he confronts death. In Everyone Loves a Good Train Wreck, the perverse is never far from the sublime. The result is a powerful and delightfully provocative defense of what it means to be human—for better and for worse.
