Canaries in the Mineshaft

Essays on Politics and Media
A non fiction book by

Renata Adler is one of the most original, incisive, and witty writers active in American letters today. Whether it be fiction, reportage, or essay, her work is marked by a truly extraordinary intellect and a luminous prose that is penetrating, precise, deft, and, often, very funny. In this new collection - which includes, among many other subjects, an early and definitive profile of the National Guard; the widely discussed and still controversial review of Pauline Kael; and the first major piece about foreign contributions to American political campaigns - Adler's wide-ranging reflections become focused on two increasingly fused interests: politics, which govern our public world, and the media, which now actively distort and misrepresent information about that world.
Canaries in the Mineshaft is yet another proof that Renata Adler is one of the most delightful and brilliant writers of our day.
