The next essay collection from prize-winning writer Meghan Daum is coming this fall.
Gallery Books announced Thursday that Daum’s “The Problem With Everything: A Journey Through the Culture Wars” is scheduled for October. Daum said in a statement that she wanted to take on the “conflicted state of liberalism generally and feminism in particular.” She also called the book a “personal story” about feeling adrift during a turbulent time.
Daum’s previous books include “The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion”, which won the 2015 PEN Center USA Award for creative nonfiction. She is a former Los Angeles Times columnist whose work also has appeared in The New Yorker and The New York Times. CC
