Garret Keizer / <i>The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want</i> Montpelier Vermont

Noise is usually defined as unwanted sound, but as Keizer illustrates in his new book, noise is as much about what we want as what we don't want. As Kiezer hears it, noises give us a key for understanding some of our most vital issues including social inequality, climate change and the way we treat ourselves and our children.

In a review of the book in the New York Times, Dwight Garner says "As the effortlessly intelligent Mr. Keizer points out, noise is among the thorniest class issues of our time, and we tend to utterly ignore its meanings."

Garret Keizer is a free lance writer and the author of six books including the critically acclaimed Help, The Enigma of Anger and A Dresser of Sycamore Trees. He lives in the North East Kingdom of Vermont.
