REIMAGINING SANITY: VOICES BEYOND THE ECHO CHAMBER

In this collection of sardonic and synergistic diatribes, radical teacher and writer Paul Haeder confronts six decades of America’s great slide into the intellectual muck that is today's neoliberal morass. In these literary incantations, the iconoclastic Haeder fights against the trappings of a world gone mad while simultaneously contemplating the missed chances of his own life. Collected over a decade of writing for the radical blog Dissident Voice, the wide range of essays vary in stylistics, shifting voices and points of view, but are all underpinned by Paul’s fearlessness. They come crashing together to spark a rarefied bonfire of truth rising from the ashes of propaganda and doublethink. Reimagining Sanity: Voices Beyond the Echo Chamber is a white-water rapid rush, a free-fall into the heart of American darkness.  

AUTHOR PAUL HAEDER

Born in LA, weaned in the Azores and placated during his formative years in Paris, Paul Haeder began his career as a journalist in Southern Arizona and as a travel writer in Europe. His is a life lived on the border: both literally in El Paso-Juarez and metaphorically through his own combative style of teaching, writing and activism. Haeder hitchhiked from Nogales to Panama and wrote about the trip, worked in prisons and gang-influenced neighborhoods as a writing and photography instructor, and was a dive master in the Yucatan. From street newspaper writing in Seattle to documenting his biodiversity work in Vietnam for E-Magazine to writing about greenwashing for Planning Magazine, Paul represents a last cry in the wilderness, speaking to and from precarity, poverty and revolutionary zeal. Eclecticism, surrealism and survival are what he brings to the great fire of dying discourses as he fights the insanity Western Culture imposes on us all.


RECOMMENDATIONS


Paul possesses the admirable ability to see solutions through the fog of politics and personalities, and he’ll tell us reasonable ways to get there even before the excuses begin.
Joe Butler, editor, Spokesman Review, editor of Down to Earth, 2008-2014

Paul brings out a certain raw, emotional side to his subjects and issues. You never can predict what he is going to ask, and his ability to cut right to the point makes his writing an unpredictable thrill ride to the heart and the truth.
―Bart Mihailovich, environmental writer and advocate

Try reading him ...  with no allegiances to the elites and powerful. If you need a house call for quick intellectual triage, pick up a book of Haeder's and dive deep into its layers. At the other end of the journey, you will be baptized in a new wonder of showing no fear, fearing no one.

Haeder’s topic is always the world, and Haeder is the filter through which the world has to pass: rhythmic outburst, lyric language, howling at the moon. When other authors have forgotten to be outraged by the outrageous, Haeder has been a North Star who says, “You gotta look at this! You won’t believe…” and fill in here the absurd and unimaginable bullshit of the universe. 
―Michael Strelow, author of Henry, A Novel of Beer and Love in the West; and The Greening of Ben Brown. Kesey is his non-fiction book. Upcoming novel is The Moby-Dick Blues.

Paul Haeder does not have a politically correct bone in his body nor is he willing to rent any! A book by Paul will bring reaction from readers, pro and con, but you can bet that it will be a book people will read with interest.
―Angie Tibbs, Dissident Voice, Senior Editor


AUTHOR'S MEDIA


Paul Haeder Interviews David Suzuki scientist, environmentalist, author, and documentary producer

In 1989, David Suzuki's award-winning radio series It's a Matter of Survival sounded an alarm of where the planet was heading. Over 17,000 of his shocked fans sent him letters asking for ways to avert the catastrophe. A group of people urged David Suzuki and Tara Cullis to create a new, solutions-based organization. That November, they hosted a gathering with a dozen thinkers and activists on Pender Island, B.C. By the end of the meeting, something significant was afoot. And after many planning meetings, on Sept. 14, 1990, the David Suzuki Foundation was incorporated.
