The Secret Parts of Fortune: Three Decades of Intense Investigations and Edgy Enthusiasms Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A provocative collection of 30 years of brilliant reporting on American culture from the author of "Explaining Hitler", "one of the most original journalists and writers of our time" (David Remnick).

About the Author

Ron Rosenbaum's work has appeared in Harper's, The New Yorker, The New Republic, Esquire, and The New York Times Magazine. His book Explaining Hitler has been translated into ten languages. He writes "The Edgy Enthusiast" column for the New York Observer and is at work on his next book, on Shakespeare scholars. Aware of the controversy over authors posing with their pets on book jackets, he has not posed with his soulful cat, Stumpy (depicted here), whose comic genius is described on pages 710-15 of this volume.
