WORTHY OF THIS GREAT CITY
by Mike Miller

KINDLE

Ruth Askew, a minor celebrity, is spouting some highly incompetent philosophy about the end of philosophy, a fortunate woman mysteriously pushed to extremes. Con Manos, a journalist, is searching for certainty, meanwhile attempting to uncover a political scandal or two.

In Worthy Of This Great City the compelling stories of two stubborn individualists intertwine in a scathing satire that invites you to question everything you think you think about today’s most discussed issues: populism and elitism, the possibility of truth, the reach of profound stupidity, and the limits of personal responsibility in these post-truth, morally-uncertain times.
