THE DEATH OF TRUTH Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump

by | Read by Tavia Gilbert

Contemporary Culture • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Versatile narrator Tavia Gilbert performs this significant audiobook with a sure sense of its importance. Her focused reading suits the intent of its thought-provoking treatise on how and why truth and reason are vanishing from our national politics and discourse. The literary allusions and philosophical insights packed into the work would create a challenge for any narrator. Gilbert meets that challenge admirably. A Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for THE NEW YORK TIMES, Michiko Kakutani casts her net on contemporary America’s thoughts, habits, and attitudes. While her scorn for the style and substance of President Trump is palpable, she blames postmodernist deconstructionism and its appropriation by the alt-right for our current lack of truth-based argument.
