about this item

In One Million Maniacs, David LeGault attempts to collect one hundred copies of the 10,000 Maniacs: Unplugged CDs -- a quest that frames a broader look at why we collect things and how we try to fix our lives with stuff. Each chapter uses a different collectible item and shows how we often take internal comfort with external possession. The monetary value of Beanie Babies becomes a way to talk about the death of a friend. Baseball-card expos become an entry point into his infant daughter’s hospitalization. Photos wedged into used books become a way to investigate the lives of mysterious strangers. LeGault's debut is a candid and often very funny look at how we all look for value amidst life's trash and chaos.
