Auteur: Dorfman, Ariel
Titel: Other Septembers, Many Americas
Sub titel: Selected Provocations, 1980-2004
A greatest hits of his shorter works by the well known Chilean author, poet, playwright, and activist essays, opinion pieces, poems, and previously unpublished speeches. Primary in his writing is Dorfman's reminder to Americans of their unique role in the world, and how this role could be to resist violence and bring forth a peaceful future instead of becoming the fearful, violent giant of the world. Of note is Dorfman's writings, comparisons, and experience during the "other September 11" of 1973, when he was on the staff of Chilean President Allende as a US backed coup overthrew and murdered the elected President. Plus writings about America, North and South, that touch on topics as diverse as Scrooge McDuck, barbarians, bilingualism, Vietnam, Dostoevsky, and video games, and as profound as redemption, forgiveness, art, and memory.
