The Tongue is Also a Fire: Essays on Conversation, Rhetoric and the Transmission of Culture . . . and on C. S. Lewis Cover Image
NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days


With conversation and its rhetoric as the axel of his wheel and culture as its rim, Professor Como examines many spokes that connect one to the other, from teaching and life in higher education, to President Obama, Mickey Mantle, movies, LBJ, Peru, Shakespeare, and C. S. Lewis. Alive with wit, direct address, rich experience, and much learning worn lightly, Como's approaches include scholarship, journalism, how-to instruction, criticism, and anecdote. Yet always at the center is how our conversations build our culture.
