From the acclaimed author of Listen, Liberal and What's the Matter with Kansas, a scathing collection of interlocking essays perfect for this political moment.
With his trademark sardonic wit and lacerating logic, New York Times-bestselling author Thomas Frank takes us on a tour through present-day America, showing us a society in the late stages of disintegration.
Holding nothing back, Frank skewers both the right and left, and rages about the systematic inequality that led, in 2016, to millions of anxious, ordinary people rallying to the presidential campaign of a billionaire who meant them no good.
For those who despair of the future of America and of reason itself, Rendezvous with Oblivion is a booster shot of energy, reality, and moral outrage.
Thomas Frank is the author of Pity the Billionaire, The Wrecking Crew, What's the Matter with Kansas?, and Listen, Liberal (Scribe 2016). A former columnist for The Wall Street Journal and Harper's , Frank is the founding editor of The Baffler . He lives outside Washington, DC.
