Product Details


“David Bromwich is our elegant American muse, our Boswell, whose incisive and caustic reporting on the political scene and the presidency often evokes Hunter S. Thompson. There is much to learn, and enjoy, in American Breakdown.”
—Seymour M. Hersh

“One of the most incisive writers in America today.”
—Edward Mendelson

“Bromwich is particularly sharp on the way government spokesmen wrap the realities of massacre, torture, and gratuitous cruelty in euphemism … A critic in the tradition of Hazlitt and Orwell.”
—Alan Ryan

“For several decades, David Bromwich has stood out among American critics as one of the most daring and knowledgeable challengers of received opinion and orthodoxies.”
—Margery Sabin
