Fall 2010 Evenings with Authors: David Rakoff
Presented by Thurber House
The New York Times bestselling author of Don't Get Too Comfortable has a brand new collection of inimitably wise and witty essays about the human condition, especially our current contemporary culture. At once both funny and insightful, Rakoff examines life today, ranging from the personal, including the nanosecond when being a child no longer meant adults found him charming but rather other children found him an easy target; to lacerating the musical Rent for its too cute depiction of AIDS. His sharp observations and Oscar-Wilde-worthy cultural criticisms make the absurdities of life a joy to read.
