Overview

Other Septembers, Many Americas: Selected Provocations, 1980-2004 is the first major collection of novelist and playwright Ariel Dorfman's best shorter works, including essays, opinion pieces, poems, and previously unpublished speeches. Gathered here are writings about America, North and South, that touch on topics as diverse as Scrooge McDuck, barbarians, bilingualism, Vietnam, Dostoevski, the Iliad, and video games, and as profound as redemption, forgiveness, art, and memory. Taken as a whole, this collection forms a historical and social text essential for anyone who wishes to understand how the roots of our present crisis are embedded deep within the American psyche, documented by a writer who exists uniquely, both inside and out of it.
