About Local Matters
Brian Fawcetts first book of essays since 1991s Unusual Circumstances, Interesting Times, Local Matters tries to come to grips with a system behind what everyone calls "globalization", and to isolate some of its less publicized effects. A collection of thoughtful, irreverent, deliberately personal essays, Local Matters is a polemic against brandborne viruses, a love letter to one mans Toronto neighbourhood, and a road map to a better world. Many of the essays are developed from earlier versions published on dooneyscafe.com, the internet news service Fawcett runs with Stan Persky.
