A Cry from the Far Middle: Dispatches from a Divided Land is conservative humorist P.J. O’Rourke’s look at the current state of these angry and perplexed United States. But fear not, dear readers – he says that’s what America has always been about. With wry essays on everything from our fraught history to the political effects of social media to the “Internet of Things,” the satirist delivers his signature wit and wisdom. He’s volleying with South Florida’s own Dave Barry, whose latest is Lessons from Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog.
