From Rachel Kushner the celebrated, "exceptionally talented, and philosophically minded writer," (San Francisco Chronicle) and regular contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine, a career-spanning collection of spectacular essays encompassing politics, culture, and art.

 

In nineteen razor-sharp essays, The Hard Crowd spans literary journalism, memoir, cultural criticism, and writing about art and literature, including pieces on politics, social justice, and her personal relationships, as well as on Jeff Koons, Denis Johnson, and Marguerite Duras. Kushner takes us on a journey through a Palestinian refugee camp in East Jerusalem, the world of truckers, and the music scene of her hometown of San Francisco. Her stories are electric, incisive, and wry, and provide us the opportunity to witness the evolution and range of one of our most dazzling and fearless writers.
