M Allen Cunningham Reads from His New Book Q&A M. Allen Cunningham

    • Arts

Cunningham describes his book Q&A and then reads three short sections (which happen to feature a few "F-bombs", FYI).

Inspired by true events, bold in the forms with which it evokes an agitated, media-soaked half century in America, Q&A urgently reimagines the misunderstood quiz show scandals in light of our own time, as a moment of cultural reckoning whose reverberations we feel all around us today: in reality television, TV politics, the triumph of incoherence, and the pandemic problem of how to be real in a world of screen-induced self-deception.

This reading was performed via Zoom. View the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1B57vdvR_XU.
