Dinty W. Moore’s Between Panic and Desire is a not quite conventional memoir of fatherhood, television, and U.S. politics in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Both personal and cultural, Moore’s memoir “documents the disorienting experience of growing up in a postmodern world” through a variety of forms and not without a healthy dose of humor.
Please R.S.V.P. by March 18 to associate professor of English Allison Schuette at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions for the roundtable also may be submitted to Professor Schuette.
