Activist. Advocate. Gadfly. Thorn in the side, savior of life and limb, spoiler of presidential elections. Ralph Nader has been called many things in his 75 years, although “novelist” hasn’t been one of them. Until now, that is, with the publication of his first non-nonfiction book.
Promoted as a work of Practical Utopian Fiction, Nader’s new book Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us! is a weighty (700-plus pages) and wild story in which an all-star roster of real-life billionaires (including Warren Buffett, Ted Turner and, um, Yoko Ono?) team up to solve the world’s problems, in Naderesque fashion.
Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit is pleased to bring you an interview with this perennial public figure (currently considering a run for US Senate), as he visits Brookdale Community College this weekend in an appearance hosted by BookMark It! Events.
Fasten your seatbelts and don’t forget to thank Mr. Nader for that then get ready to Ralph, right here in Red Bank oRBit!
