Product Details

Praise

Benderson displays great skill at writing both the old erudite crank and the glossy cheerleader, and the end result is a novel that is more about interior terrain than the land outside our window. The book reads more like Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Passive-Aggressiveness, with commentary by some anonymous, brain-dead copywriter for Seattle Metropolitan magazine. It’s a delicious combination.—The Stranger

Bruce Benderson’s Pacific Agony is a welcome literary evisceration of the effects twenty years of ‘bourgeois gentrification’ have exerted on the American landscape.
