"Mr. Bogosian has crossed the line that separates an exciting artist from a cultural hero. What Lenny Bruce was to the 1950s, Bob Dylan to the 1960s, Woody Allen to the 1970s - that's what Eric Bogosian is to this frightening moment of drift... I Know of no one else like him in pop culture right now." -Frank Rich, New York Times "Pure Theatrical Adrenaline." -Time Out New York One of America's premier performers and most original playwrights, Eric Bogosian has earned increasing fame for his disturbing, comic appearances on stage, on film, and on the page. From his earliest evenings of monologues (Men Inside; Voices of America; Funhouse), to his best-known solo shows (Drinking in America; Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll) and his remarkable first play (Talk Radio), Bogosian has explored the dark underbelly of the American dream with blistering prose, trenchant social criticism and breathtakingly accurate characterizations of an astonishing range of fellow citizens. The Essential Bogosian brings together Talk Radio and all of Bogosian's monologues up through Drinking in America, providing the fullest view yet of this mercurial, much-emulated talent. One of America's premier performers and most innovative and provocative artists, Eric Bogosian's plays and solo shows include Talk Radio (Pulitzer Prize finalist); subUrbia; Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll; Pounding Nails in the Floor with My Forehead, among many others. He has starred in a wide variety of film, TV and stage roles. Most recently, he created the character Captain Danny Ross on the long-running series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. 100, a collection of monologues, commemorating thirty years of Bogosian's solo-performance career, was published by TCG in 2014.

The America of the 1980s is often caricatured as a time of yuppie greed and self-absorption. But what was driving that decades rampant pursuit of individual pleasure? What were the cultural forces behind Madonna’s ”Material Girl” and Oliver Stone’s Wall Street? These fascinating essays, collected by historian Gilbert T. Sewall from the major books, journals, news reports, and public addresses of the day, survey the tumultuous social change that engulfed the nation--and explain why we are still feeling the aftershocks today.With contributions by such diverse figures as Chistopher Lasch, Lewis H. Lapham, Eric Bogosian, and Hilton Kramer, The Eighties touches on the hallmarks of the age: celebrity culture and hype, exhibitionism and shamelessness, academic ferment, and the lure of money. Kennedy Fraser on the new trend machine. James Q. Wilson on attitudes toward crime, Shelby Steele on African American angst, Tom Wolfe on art objects as religious totems--this lively reader brings together, for the first time, the voices that defined an era.As Sewall so deftly tells it, the story of the 1980s is not merely one of politics or financial chicanery--although both get their due in the book. The 1980s were an era of disquieting attitudes, fantasies, and dreams. As Americans experienced new forms of social anxiety and spiritual crisis, the debate over what constitutes excellence in the arts and in education touched off the so-called culture wars. All of this is evident in the rise of identity politics as well as in films like The Big Chill and feel-good democratic displays of international activism like Live Aid, in the overnight sensation of cocaine-fueled, star-studded nightclubs like New York City’s Limelight, in the flamboyant mood of hit television shows like Dynasty and Dallas, and in the success of The Closing of the American Mind, Allan Bloom’s staunch defense of Western tradition.Invigorated conservatism in politics and society was, paradoxically, accompanied by the ascent of a new establishment of ”tenured radicals,” for whom alternative values and cultural innovation supported lucrative careers. Finally empowered to make the social and political changes they had only dreamed about in earlier decades, these boomers stimulated an acrimonious debate over the nature of the good life and the soul of the nation.With remarkable verve, The Eighties sheds new light on the decade that brought us Ronald Reagan and MTV, a decade that continues to frame some of today’s most vexing political, economic, and cultural debates
