Don Watson

Anthologies, Essays & Journals - Published: 30/Jul/2018 - ISBN: 9780522873771

Exploring indignation through generations of his family and their Old Testament rages Watson asks why wounded pride or a sense of injustice unleashes this fury and whether there is ever virtue in it. In an updated version for our post-truth world Watson's classic essay traces this seemingly ineradicable emotion in a journey that takes us, via his forebears, Flaubert, The Sopranos, and the Old Testament to Donald Trump.
