A gifted novelist, Lorrie Moore is also an ace nonfiction writer, and in these 66 essays and reviews she surveys the political, artistic, and media landscape of the past three decades. In these items—originally appearing in the pages of the New York Times, The Atlantic, and the New Yorker, among others—Moore looks back on her first job as a legal aide, and turns a discerning eye on the state of the GOP, the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, the 2016 election, and race in America. Literature and the arts are front and center however, and Moore comments perceptively on Margaret Atwood, Kurt Vonnegut, Eudora Welty, Alice Munro, Stephen Stills, and Werner Herzog.
