This is an amazing collection of short stories in which common themes (boxing, epilepsy, doctors, mental institutions, Vietnam) weave in and out of narratives that are so present and characters that are so vivid that each one seems like a whole novel. So good. Go read this right now.
This was more like 2.5 stars for me--someone who has plenty of personal experience with most of the obstacles Draut describes--but wasn't badly done and could be 3 stars for some well-off baby boomer who's somehow wondering what the hell our problem is. I mostly skimmed, though. I paid most attention to the last couple of chapters which had some suggestions for how to, you know, change every single hegemonic/political/social/educational institution we've got.
