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.
Stan Persky is a native of Chicago, IL who now makes his home in Vancouver, after stops in San Francisco and Terrace, BC. He is the author of Then We Take Berlin and Buddy's, as well as several books about politics. A former columnist for the Vancouver Sun and the Globe and Mail, he now teaches in the philosophy department at Capilano College in North Vancouver and contributes frequently to dooneyscafe.com.
