Letters from Eden
Human history had been an eternal struggle between hope and hopelessness. Somewhere in the twentieth century hope finally won. Letters from Eden - Postscript of an American Century chronicles the remarkable crusade of a man named Adam. His voyage begins amid the unpromising aftermath of WWI, trudges through the successive agonies of the Great Depression and WWII, and then confronts the assorted mysteries of post-modernity. It is an enterprise continually frustrated by brutal conflict, pompous bureaucrats, and the absurdities of a culture of fashionable correctness. He shatters every barrier with inexhaustible optimism and humor. Adam's journey is the story of America.
