Literary Nonfiction. LOW DISHONEST DECADES charts the thirty–five years in which income inequality has established itself in America as a fundamental problem. Thomas Geoghegan praises this book as "a matchless political education" by a writer David Bromwich describes as "a keeper of the conscience of American radicalism." George Scialabba's prose is clearly written, humane in outlook and thought provoking, qualities missing from our current public discourse.
When George Scialabba recently retired from managing a Harvard University building, the The New Yorker and The Nation paid him tribute in print and Noam Chomsky and a brass band saw him off in person. He plans to continue to read, write and closely follow the follies of America's bloviating pundits, business leaders and politicians.Author City: CAMBRIDGE, MA USA
