"Don Watson, one-time political speechwriter and author of the acclaimed 'Recollections of a Bleeding Heart', can take it no longer. In 'Death Sentence", he takes a blowtorch to the words - and their users - who kill joy, imagination and clarity. Scathing, funny and brilliant, 'Death Sentence' is a small look of profound weight - and timeliness." (From back cover)
