Аудиокнига Thank God for the Atom Bomb and Other Essays
"e;This is not a book to promote tranquility, and readers in quest of peace of mind should look elsewhere,"e; writes Paul Fussell in the foreword to this original, sharp, tart, and thoroughly engaging work. The celebrated author focuses his lethal wit on habitual euphemizers, artistically pretentious third-rate novelists, sexual puritans, and the "e;Disneyfiers of life."e; He moves from the inflammatory title piece on the morality of dropping the bomb on Hiroshima to a hilarious disquisition on the "e;naturist movement"e;, to essays on the meaning of the Indy 500 race, on George Orwell, and on the shift in men's chivalric impulses toward their mothers. Fussell's "e;frighteningly acute eye for the manners, mores, and cultural tastes of Americans"e; (New York Times Book Review) is abundantly evident in this entertaining dissection of the enemies of truth, beauty, and justice.
