TONY SUTTON—Despite their tribulations, the characters in Bruder’s book show amazing resilience, good humour and cameradie as, exhausted at Christmas, the culmination of the hardest and busiest work period at Amazon, they pack their possessions into a motley caravan of dilapidated vehicles and drive away to converge on the winter-cooled deserts of Nevada, California and Arizona.

JOHN R. HALL—How do you convince a schmuck with a two hundred thousand dollar high interest student loan debt and an engineering degree from the University of Arizona that working at Raytheon is tantamount to mass-murder? Who’s going to tell that testosterone-charged, fresh out of high school young buck that joining the U.S. Marines isn’t going to build him into a man, but, like so many boys before him, turn him into a fiend, a killer, a rapist?

PETER KOENIG—Iran waited for 60 weeks, after the US unilaterally withdrew from the deal in May 2018, hoping that the Europeans, the so-called E3 (Germany, France and the UK) would honor their commitment to JCPOA, signed in July 2015 in Vienna, Austria.

P. GREANVILLE—If you don’t know or never heard about Claudia Stauber, well, you’ve been missing something, pardner. A Vermonter, and dedicated ecoanimal defender, Claudia is a 100% woke activist who hosts Cabin Talk, one of the most refreshing political/public affairs shows around. This is citizens’ journalism as it should be: no frills, spontaneous, righteous, fierce and intelligent. And 100% honest. All of it delivered by a woman who is obviously beautiful inside and out. A former Sandernista, Claudia has not attained (yet) the visibility of a Jimmy Dore, another rare and forceful truthtalker, but she’s obviously of the same political DNA.
