Synopsis

A welcome surprise: more than fifty prose pieces, gathered together for the first time, by one of Americas most revered and admired novelists and short-story writers, whose articles, essays, and cultural commentaryappearing in the New York Review of Books, the New York Times Book Review, the New Yorker, The Atlantic, the Guardian, Harpers Magazine, and elsewherehave been parsing the political, artistic, and media idiom for the last three decades.From Lorrie Moores earliest reviews of novels by Margaret Atwood and Nora Ephron, to an essay on Ezra Edelmans 2016 O. J. Simpson documentary, and in between: Moore on the writing of fiction (the works of V. S. Pritchett, Don DeLillo, Philip Roth, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Munro, Stanley Elkin, Dawn Powell, Nicholson Baker, et al.); on the continuing unequal state of race in America; on the shock of the shocking GOP; on the dangers (and cruel truths) of celebrity marriages and love affairs; on the wilds of television (The Wire, Friday Night Lights, Into the Abyss, Girls, Homeland, True Detective, Making a Murderer); on the (d)evolving environment; on terrorism, the historical imagination, and the worlds newest form of novelist; on the lesser (and larger) lives of biography and the midwifery between art and life (Anas Nin, Marilyn Monroe, John Cheever, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Eudora Welty, Bernard Malamud, among others); on the high art of being Helen Gurley Brown; and much, much more. Fifty years from now, it may well turn out that the work of very few American writers has as much to say about what it means to be alive in our time as that of Lorrie Moore (Harpers Magazine).
