Rhetorical Occasions by Michael Bérubé

Rhetorical Occasions collects twenty-four Bérubé essays and presents a good showcase of the author's wide range, spanning literary theory and criticism, cultural studies, academic life, politics, and even scholarly blog writing.

This was the first Bérubé text I read, and I purposely spread out the essays and read them over a year, to allow the material to distill.

Good stuff and definitely recommended, although readers with little interest in scholarly writing might want to steer toward some of Bérubé's archived blog writings instead.
