Whether impersonating Sigmund Freudin a department store window during the holidays, climbing up an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitivesurvival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn't belong - nor does he try to. Fraud offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously. 226p.

    • Published: 2010
    The bestselling author of Don't Get Too Comfortable views through a dark lens the sunny, gosh-everyone-can-be-a-star contemporary culture wrap-around, finding that, pretty much as universal rule, the best is not yet to come, adversity will triumph, justice will not be served, and YOUR dreams won't come true. The real subject here being human disappointment. While making good sport out of cultural phenomena, Rakoff crafts a manifesto of sorts, one that praises all the scorned emotions - dread, anxiety, misgiving, to name a few - that offer different, more fruitful forms of human satisfaction, like appreciation for what is, or beauty, even. 224p.
