?Every time a complex human emotion threatened to break the surface of my consciousness, out would come terrible cleverness,? writes David Rakoff, actor, writer and frequent commentator on public radio?s This American Life. Blurring the line between journalism and satire, Rakoff?s first book of essays, Fraud, describes, among other things, a Buddhist retreat led by Steven Segal and Rakoff?s own brief stint as Sigmund Freud in the Christmas window of Barney?s in New York. Rakoff?s writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Vogue, and Salon.com. His latest collection Don?t Get Too Comfortable will be published this year.
