Maverick Voices : Conversations with Political and Cultural Rebels Paperback / softback
Part of the Logos: Perspectives on Modern Society and Culture series
Mavericks may not make the world go around, but they do make it an infinitely more interesting place.
Maverick Voices offers in-depth interviews with prominent iconoclasts stubbornly at work in the interlacing realms of politics, literature, film, art, and psychotherapy.
These highly accomplished people, who hail from the USA, Europe, and Latin America, thrived in their fields against the odds, often gaining worldwide acclaim.
They are exemplars of a rare breed of fiercely independent, creative, and committed artists and activists who shake things up, shatter barriers, and scorn taboos. These conversations probe the wellsprings of their work, their struggles, and their achievements.
Whether defying a death squad, exposing government lies, challenging censors, writing graphic accounts of how war reallly feels, puncturing cherished national myths, making zesty, sexy, crazy films, or finding ingenious ways to heal deeply disturbed kids, they contribute to a more fascinating and humane world and they appeal to the maverick at play or at bay in all of us.
