Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Gerald Rosen has seen America from most every vantage point. He grew up in a house without books, obtained an ivy league Ph.D. in literature, and went on to run a liquor store on the edge of Harlem. He's crossed paths, in one way or another, with Miles Davis, Jack Kerouac, Janis Joplin - even Babe Ruth. So his observations about American culture carry his own particular brand of authenticity. And what he sees has him a little concerned. "We each of us are born into this culture, so we start getting in a sense hypnotized the day we're born," he notes. "So we're Americans - we walk like Americans, we talk like Americans. This is our social inheritance. But this culture, it's not working for us. There's something missing. There's some hunger, some dryness, some hollowness to our culture." How we got to that place of hollowness, and how we can begin to fill it, is the subject of this provocative interview with this very American author. (hosted by Michael Toms)
