Voters in the USA are on the cusp of a momentous election that has the world watching. At this potential turning point in history, join four distinguished American writers as they explore the contradictions of a great nation and the challenges it faces in turbulent times. Essayist Garnette Cadogan writes on history, culture and the arts for various US publications. David Denby, former film critic and now a staff writer for The New Yorker, has published books on topics as varied as sarcasm on the Internet to misadventures in the dot-com stock market. Poet and essayist Christopher Merrill was appointed by President Obama to serve on the National Council on the Humanities. Lindy West writes about politics and pop culture from a feminist perspective. Join them for an in depth look at the United States from the inside.
