Rude Awakenings from the American Dream
Freelance writer and essayist Richard Harsham's incisive social commentaries have appeared in major newspapers around the country for more than two decades. Wielding a wry wit invigorated by curmudgeonly irreverence, Harsham deciphers an array of cultural conundrums and unmasks the prevailing pomposities that vex us all. Idiosyncratic and effervescent, his insights provide vivid confirmation that the American Dream endures as the heady dynamic that both inspires and stymies our endless quest to connect the dots as we make our mark. Here's an essayist who unflinchingly reveals a "white knuckle" grasp of subject matter that often slips through the fingers of better known commentators.
"Noteworthy, Mr. Harsham writes very well and has something to say two conditions not often found these days in the publishing world." ¯ Russell Baker, Pulitzer Prize (Growing Up)
