Avram Alpert, a graduate of the Comparative Literature and Literary Theory Program, has written a new book The Good-Enough Life (Princeton U. Press) to be released on April 19th (North America) and June 14th (UK/Europe). The book argues that in an imperfect world, everyone should have decency and sufficiency, and no one should have too much. It looks at the far-reaching implications of that simple statement for individuals, relationships, society, and nature. More info about the book and a sample are available here.
