QotD on authenticity and artifice

“That workers are toiling so hard for authenticity amid a wholly artificial environment, meant to evoke another time and another place, causes my heart to skip a beat in admiration of the utter complexity of American life.” Introduction – And a Bottle of Rum by Wayne Curtis. (p.8)

I’m re-reading this for my book club…it was my favorite book of 2007.
