Akin to Thomas Hardy stories of Dorsetshires countryside – timely to his place and ours – Thomas Morgan’s Indiana stories in his new book Glimpses synchronize a sense of country place apposite and applicable to our time.
John Maraldo, Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, University of North Florida hailed the book, stating, “Rare is the writing that defies categorization – rarer still when it presses readers to reconsider nearly every way they are led by the shifting sway of media to believe is politically correct and incorrect. Tom Morgan shoots through clichés and quick sound bites about liberal and conservative, left and right and offers instead a fresh, honest and provocative account of a life that has turned both socialist commitments and animal husbandry into a daily practice of caring…”
Alan M. Wald, author of Exiles from a Future Time, Trinity of Passion and American Night, also commended the author: “The job of Morgan’s writing is not to act as a reflecting mirror of his experience, but as a lens through which we catch views of an alternately baffling, exasperating and mesmerizing search for some fixity by which to oppose the chaos of daily living. What remains instead is the spiritually intense presence of the author. Morgan has become the kind of character you think about long after you finish this book…”
Glimpses is available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram. Thomas Morgan is available for interviews. Please call Rob Rop at 800-767-0531 to arrange an interview or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About author Thomas G. Morgan:
Born (1940) to working class parents who experienced Terre Haute’s General Strike (1935). He has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University. In 1960, he hitchhiked across Europe, North Africa and Russia working on farms, writing feature stories for the Terre Haute Tribune. Returning home, he chaired the student-faculty committee that founded the Eugene V. Debs Foundation for Socialist History and Thought. The next year, he was indicted under the Indiana Anti-Subversive Act as an officer of the Young Socialist Alliance and faced two to six years imprisonment. An International Defense Committee was formed; Bertrand Russell Chairman, convened Norman Mailer and Malcolm X on the east coast; film actor Sterling Hayden on west coast. Hayden had been an OSS operative who fought with Resistance fighters against Hitler. Meeting Tom, his compliment was, “America is becoming an ‘Occupied Country’, but I’ve met a young man from Indiana convincing me there are pockets of resistance.” Tom Morgan’s life and writing continue that resistance.
