From Wiener's website:

Award-winning Nation magazine columnist KATHA POLLITT talks about some lessons she’s learned from her own life—about her boyfriend who deceived her (her driving instructor points out her weakness—“Observation, Katha, observation!”) and the noble final days of her leftist study group.

The stories are told in her new book LEARNING TO DRIVE: AND OTHER LIFE STORIESit’s “painfully hilarious to read,” the Boston Globe said. “Pollitt’s tone of incredulous fury is pitch perfect.”

Katha writes the column “Subject to Debate” for The Nation; her blog, “And Another Thing,” runs at TheNation.com.
