THE HARD CROWD Essays 2000-2020

by | Read by Rachel Kushner

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Rachel Kushner narrates these essays precisely and warmly. Her voice, assured and practiced, moves the text along. An admired novelist, she's a fine storyteller who uses pace well. She gives life to the many real-life characters--artists, writers, activists, daredevils--who fill this audiobook. The collection includes personal profiles, creative nonfiction, literary analysis, and an ongoing immersion into herself. A risk-taker, she catapults from her motorcycle while going more than a 100 mph during a race on the Baja Peninsula; she also has lived within San Francisco's underbelly, working from a young age in bars and clubs. An apt and adept literary critic, she writes with authority and insight about Dennis Johnson, Cormac McCarthy, and Marguerite Duras, as well as visual artists and truckers.
