Description


In this collection of essays, Codrescu focuses his keen eye on America in the "age of the chip." He confronts the convulsions of our post-ideological world at a time when "the advent of cyberspace and the caffeinating of America have occurred simultaneously." With poignancy and trenchant humor, he takes us on a roller-coaster tour of our dramatically changing country.

"[Codrescu's] paranoid vision of America is alarmingly credible."--Buzz

"'Commentary' does not begin to describe the alternately sardonic and stunned, weary, and wondering observations about modern life that Codrescu has delivered . . ."--Boston Herald
