From the man whose name is synonymous with the contemporary personal essay, Getting Personal is a rich and ambitious collection that spans Phillip Lopate's career as an essayist, teacher, film critic, father, son, and husband. Witty, insightful, deeply meditative, and self-revelatory, with his characteristic candour and curmudgeonly charm, he explores himself, his life, his family, his religion, and his friends.

Review:

"Lopate's frank and nervy essays are as vivid in their characters, story lines, and emotional intensity as fiction, but because they are, instead, idiosyncratic inquiries into the mysteries of real-life conundrums, they offer a gratifying intimacy."

About the Author:

Currently the John Cranford Adams Chair of the English Department at Hofstra University, Phillip Lopate is the author of five works of nonfiction, two novels, and two books of poems, as well as serving as editor of the best-selling collections Writing New York and The Art of the Personal Essay. The recipient of two Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts grants, he lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
