Interesting review of a collection of essays by George Scialabba published (but just barely distributed) by Arrowhead Press. What caught my attention was the description of Scialabba as a 'public intellectual' and, of course, the utter disinterest he has shown in writing a book. Also, "He writes in what William Hazlitt - the patron saint of generalist essayists - called the 'the familiar style,' and he is sometimes disarmingly explicit about the difficulties, even the pain, he experiences in trying to resolve cultural contradictions."
