Product Details


“A wonderful book.”—New York Times Book Review

“Few writers match Lapham’s witty, entertaining style, and his insight into the issues of the period. Entertaining reading: strongly recommended.”—Library Journal

“Lapham … is one of the few practicing masters of the political essay. His essays are insightful, original and witty … [Hotel America provides] a necessary reminder of how the country really works.”—Toronto Globe and Mail

“Lapham refuses to talk down to his audience, much less cozy up to its ignorance and prejudices … Nor will he surrender a jot of his wit, erudition and style.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Lapham’s portraits of his country are astute and his dry wit as sharp as a knife.”—Times

“The essays in this anthology … have in common with Lapham’s brilliance, acerbic wit, and disdain for all those who ‘defend the sanctity of myth against the heresy of fact’ … Lapham believes that ‘a raucous assembly of citizens unafraid to speak their minds’ prods Americans to think creatively about their future. This raucous assembly of one proves the point.”—Kirkus Review
