Author Mark Dery will discuss and sign copies of his new book, I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts: Drive-by Essays on American Dread, American Dreams, at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, CA on Thursday, April 19th at 11:00 AM in Rm L238.

From the cultural critic Wired called “provocative and cuttingly humorous” comes a viciously funny, joltingly insightful collection of drive-by critiques of contemporary America where chaos is the new normal. Exploring the darkest corners of the national psyche and the nethermost regions of the self, Dery makes sense of the cultural dynamics of the American madhouse early in the twenty-first century.

“Always provocative, often humorous, Dery has a keen eye for absurdity, tragedy, and everything in between. ” —Publishers Weekly
