A joyful collaboration between old friends David Byrne and Maira Kalman, this refreshing book is an antidote to cynicism, bursting with pathos, humanism, and hope—featuring his words and lyrics brought to life by more than 150 of her charming and utterly distinctive paintings. The text is drawn from Byrne's album American Utopia, which became a hit Broadway show and later an HBO film from Spike Lee. Kalman's four-color artwork was created for the Broadway show's curtain, and it is composed of small moments, expressions, gestures, and interactions that together offer a portrait of daily life and peaceful coexistence.

"With its themes of freedom, uncertainty, and inclusivity, [this book] speaks to the present moment as Byrne calls for seeking common ground despite the world's miseries."—Booklist
