The Short Version: An ABC Book

by Stan Persky

About this title: Literary Nonfiction. Stan Persky's appropriation of the alphabetical list results in a seductive mix of autobiography, essay, travel memoir, and philosophy. Alphabetically arranged essays that ask: where are we--individually and collectively, historically and geographically? And replies: at home, in the world. He evokes the blues beat of having been "Born in Chicago in 1941" and wanders the back alleys of Bangkok, Berlin, and Bucharest. And that's just a sampling from the Bs.
