Summary
The vivid, suspenseful history books for which Adam Hochschild has become well known are only a portion of his work. All his life he has also been writing shorter pieces: about the writers he loves, about his unusual life story, and about his travels to far corners of the earth?four continents, for example, are included in this volume. Finding the Trapdoor collects the best of more than two decades' worth of such articles, all of them previously published in a wide variety of magazines, from Mother Jones to the Village Voice to the New York Review of Books.
