CA – The Grouchy Historian Signing

Ed Asner and Ed Weinberger appear at Vroman’s Bookstore on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 7:00 PM to discuss their new book, The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs.

Ed Asner, a self-proclaimed dauntless Democrat from the old days, figured that if the right-wing wackos are wrong about voter fraud, Obama’s death panels, and climate change, they are probably just as wrong about what the Constitution says. There’s no way that two hundred-plus years later, the right-wing ideologues know how to interpret the Constitution. On their way home from Philadelphia the people who wrote it couldn’t agree on what it meant. What was the president’s job? Who knew? All they knew was that the president was going to be George Washington and as long as he was in charge, that was good enough. When Hamilton wanted to start a national bank, Madison told him that it was unconstitutional. Both men had been in the room when the Constitution was written. And now today there are politicians and judges who claim that they know the original meaning of the Constitution. Are you kidding? In The Grouchy Historian, Ed Asner leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It’s about time someone gave them hell and explained that progressives can read, too.

In 2002, he made his Los Angeles Opera debut with a double bill of Bartok’s “Duke Bluebeard’s Castle” and Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi,” R. Strauss’ “Ariadne auf Naxos,” also with Kent Nagano. In 2005, he directed Saint-Saens’ “Samson and Delilah” for the New Israeli Opera, Tel Aviv; and Verdi’s “Aida” at the Teatro Regio Torino in Italy.

In 2006, he directed “Duke Bluebeard’s Castle” / “Gianni Schicchi” for Washington National Opera at The Kennedy Center. The same year, he enjoyed an extremely successful collaboration with Kent Nagano at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich, with new productions of Strauss’ “Salome” and the world premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s “Das Gehege.” Both productions continue to be performed through the 2008 season.

Within the last two decades, Friedkin has returned to his early roots in television drama with the highly acclaimed “12 Angry Men,” and has directed episodes of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” He has also directed such searing action films as “Rules of Engagement, “The Hunted,” “Bug,” and “Killer Joe” starring Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch.
