No one is quite sure. "In House of Coates, writer Brad Zellar pieces together the story of legendary recluse Lester B. Morrison. Working from a handful of encounters and contradictory conversations, a sketchy paper trail and often confounding interviews with individuals who may or may not have been "associates" of Morrison (including Morrisons former collaborator Alec Soth), Zellar attempts to reconstruct one episode from Morrisons decidedly episodic life. In the winter of 2011, Zellar finally crossed paths with his evasive subject, and was with Morrisons permission granted access to the results of an MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) test that Morrison submitted to in August of 2009, along with the administrating psychiatrists copious notes. Finally, in late December of last year, Zellar received in the mail a duct-taped shoebox marked "PERISHABLE" containing almost two hundred photographs that Morrison termed "disposable documents of the approximate period in question."

Una storia americana forse vera o forse inventata, comprendente le immagini dell'alter ego di Alec Soth, Lester B. Morrison, e i testi dello scrittore Brad Zellar.
