Summary, etc.:
"A lavishly comprehensive collection of essays, articles, columns, and interviews from the inimitable intellectual firebrand: tackling topics from Picasso to punk rock, from religion to Rihanna, and covering the full span of her wide-ranging and important career. Much has changed since Camille Paglia first burst onto the scene with her best-selling Sexual Personae, but her laser-sharp insight, matchless wit, and fearless commentary continue to be ahead of the curve--not only capturing the tone of the moment, but often anticipating it. Provocations gathers together a rich, varied body of work from this important public intellectual who works across a dazzling array of platforms--from the lecture halls of academia to her column at Salon to the pages of The Hollywood Reporter. Whatever your political inclination or cultural touchstones, Camille's takes on the rise of the right, the death of Prince, developing a writing style, the state of LGBT activism, and presidents past and present (to name just a few topics) are thought-provoking, compulsively readable, and not to be missed. An original introduction by the author sets a galvanizing--and inspiring--tone for the book"-- Provided by publisher.
