Abstract:

A career-spanning anthology of essays on politics and culture by the best-selling author of The Flamethrowers includes entries discussing a Palestinian refugee camp, an illegal Baja Peninsula motorcycle race, and the 1970s Fiat factory wildcat strikes.

In this collection of essays, Kushner gathers a selection of her writing from over the course of the last twenty years. They address the most pressing political, artistic, and cultural issues of our times-- and illuminates the themes and real-life terrain that underpin her fiction. -- adapted from jacket
