Description Edit

In which John discusses paper towns, paper streets, mountweazels, and other fictitious entries. Why do encyclopedia editors and lexicographers and cartographers occasionally make things up on purpose? And do these fictional nonfictions say anything about the relationship between the imagined and the real?

IN OTHER NEWS: The Paper Towns movie trailer will debut on The Today Show on Thursday morning!
