ARUNDHATI ROY / HOWARD ZINN
Come September- in Coversation with Howard Zinn
CD - $12.00
Arundhati Roy-author of Booker Prize winning novel The God of Small Things-offers her unique perspective on the U.S. "war on terrorism" as a woman born, raised, and educated in India.
With lyricism and passion, Roy contextualizes the recent invasion of Iraq with her unflinching analysis of U.S.-sponsored interventions around the globe as well as her exploration of "you're either with us or with the terrorists" brand of nationalism.
"Come September" features a fascinating and lengthly introduction by populist historian Howard Zinn. Howard Zinn also joins Roy later on the cd for a riveting discussion on the writing process and the politics of being an artist in today's tumultuous times.
Enjoyable, logical, educational, and fast-paced, "Come September" is a joy to listen to! Check out her new book, "War Talk" (book 105), also on sale on this site!
