Dazed and Confused: Writers on Boomer Angst
Arlington Reads 2014 took on a complicated generation with “Dazed and Confused: Two Great Writers on Boomer Angst,” featuring authors noted for an economy of words and a keen realism.
Ann Beattie and Richard Ford are authors who explore seemingly unremarkable situations with characters who share an underlying ambivalence about commitments, careers, relationships and themselves.
Irony and disappointment may never be far off but the storytelling is always compassionate, always intelligent, always inspiring.
