Item description for Come September (AK Press Audio) by Arundhati Roy...

In this acclaimed Lannan foundation lecture from September 2002, Roy speaks poetically to power on the US’ War on Terror, globalization, the misuses of nationalism, and the growing chasm between the rich and poor. With lyricism and passion, Roy combines her literary talents and encyclopedic knowledge to expose injustice and provide hope for a future world.

"Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people’s brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead."—From the CD

Arundhati Roy is an outspoken critic of globalization and American influence. She has authored four books, -including The God of Small Things, which won the Booker Prize. This summer, she will accept the Lannan Award for Cultural Freedom.

Reviews - What do customers think about Come September (AK Press Audio)?

Roy speaks, I listen  Sep 17, 2008
Just a great great writer...Truly a joy to listen to on this CD, as well...This particular piece is pretty inspirational as it deconstructs so many myths that a Bush era has shoved down the throats of the world.

A CD like this should be a mandatory course requirement for young minds the world over to teach them to learn to think for themselves and, most importantly, question things rather than follow the rest of the sheep.
An open and honest comentary on present day world !!  Jun 11, 2007
This is the kind of rhetoric I miss in US magazines and newspapers. I don't even expect to see anything like this on TV. No body comes close. She has a fantastic global perspective. I am amazed that Ms. Roy developed a wonderful philosophy in India where majority folks are just like me "simple minded and too busy with day to day issues to bother about anything else".
provacative.  Oct 8, 2005
Arundhati is brilliant.Her perspective on hegemony is dead-on.The enormous misinformation and deliberate falsifying of American activities all over the world is deconstructed brick by brick.A rare and clear and true voice in the Western wilderness.Get this CD and listen closely.There is much to learn.
Succinct Narrative on Nationalim/Imperialism in the 20th Century  Jul 4, 2005
This Audio CD is a charming introduction to those unfamiliar to Ms Roy like myself. I wish the audio cd was longer but I think it's a very powerful and intriguing listen for people who are interested in a provocative analysis of industrialized nations. The other thing which interested me was her thoughts on India and its current state of affairs and she touched upon them as well. Ms Roy speaks poetically and uses words very carefully and appropriately. I recommend this CD to anyone regardless of the person's ideology.
