Description: Winner of Francersquo;s 2004 Prix de Flore for his memoirThe Romanian: Story of an Obsession, Bruce Benderson has gained international respect for his controversial opinions and original take on contemporary society. In this collection of essays, Benderson directs his exceptional powers of observation toward some of the most debated, as well as some of the most neglected, issues of our day. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; InSex and Isolation, readers will encounter eccentric street people, Latin American literary geniuses, a French cabaret owner, a transvestite performer, and many other unusual characters; theyrsquo;ll visit subcultures rarely described in writing and be treated to Bendersonrsquo;s iconoclastic opinions about culture in former and contemporary urban society. Whether proposing new theories about the relationship between art, entertainment, and sex, analyzing the rise of the Internet and the disappearance of public space, or considering how religion and sexual identity interact, each essay demonstrates sharp wit, surprising insight and some startling intellectual positions. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; This is the first American volume of Bendersonrsquo;s collected essays, featuring both new work and some of his best-known writings, including his famous essay ldquo;Toward the New Degeneracy.rdquo;
