Reviews

Advance praise for CULTURE WORRIER

"In these columns you'll get the benefit not just of what this great journalist has covered but what he's been through as a man. What could be more important?" --Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball and best-selling author

Praise for Clarence Page's previous book, Showing My Color

"Penetrating, often moving." --The New York Times Book Review

"Page toes no political line, his book...contains a rich vein of common sense." --USA Today

"Pragmatic, a skeptical liberal whose views are shaped by experience.... Lucid." --Publishers Weekly

"[An] absorbing, audacious and immensely enjoyable collection of essays." --San Francisco Chronicle Examiner

"Sensible, sensitive, and self-possessed...His innate gentlemanliness allows him, however, to discuss such heat-generating topics...without adding fuel to any fires. His democratic decency compels him to assay inflammatory rhetoric and clever political pleading for the grains of truth in them and to name those truths even when they are not flattering to their speakers or to society." --Booklist
