a well lived life

Tony Judt

1948 – 2010

Night by Tony Judt

As Lynn Parramore notes in her tribute on The Huffington Post, Judt “pondered American culture and politics with the critical eye of an uncle whose affection was tempered by exasperation but buoyed by an undaunted belief in us. He understood what ails us – our materialism, our selfishness, our delusions of perpetual growth and free-wheeling markets – but he also gleaned our potential to regain our footing if we could but imagine alternatives.”
