|Plot Summary of Raised By Puppets Only to be Killed By Research|
|"Best known for his accent-laden commentaries on National Public Radio (he grew up in Romania), Codrescu offers his second collection of essays about life in his adopted country. The subjects range from body scars to exile literature, from Senator Biden's unoriginal quotations to the scourge of McDonald's and Coca-Cola. There is much wry humor here; in his critique of "Wheel of Fortune," Codrescu calls Vanna White a "Dada artist who ... methodically destroys language by revealing cliches letter by letter, day after day, year after year.""
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
