Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
By turns playful, angry, clever, serious, sentimental, cynical, and ribald, Joseph Dobrian’s essays and journalism turn conventional wisdom on its ear. This collection of Joseph Dobrian’s non-fiction provides new, contrarian perspectives on a wide range of subjects, and dares you to disagree. In the course of this book, the author:

• explains what it means to write honestly
• debunks the concept of “unconditional love”
• contrasts modern and old-fashioned ideas of etiquette
• discusses the finer points of food, drink, and personal style
• looks askance at politics, justice, and religion
• dissects “The Awful English Language”
• advises on how to keep romance alive
• suggests what music to listen to, on the last night of your life

Whether or not he’s right, is for the reader to decide — but Joseph Dobrian is never in doubt.

“The American Orwell. Agree with him or not, Joseph Dobrian is a wonderful writer.” — Casper Melick


“Even if you can’t agree with everything in Joseph Dobrian’s aptly titled book of maddening and illuminating essays — and I certainly can’t — you can’t help but admire the passion and perception revealed in each one. Provocateur, devil’s advocate, pontificator, stylist, romantic, 24/7 judge and jury, humanist despite his best intentions to the contrary, he will irritate you, entertain you, and just possibly make you rethink your own indefensible positions.”
— Holly Carver
