PRAISE FOR BLOOMINGTON DAYS "Why did I purchase six copies of Bloomington Days for Chanukah and Christmas presents last year? Blaise Cronin's hilarious yet affectionate words capture the bucolic surrealism of B-town for its happy inhabitants and for those misguided souls only passing through."Susan D. Gubar, Distinguished Professor of English, Indiana University, and author of Rooms of Our Own."A wonderful blend of deft writing, wit, and critical observation."Adelheid M. Gealt, Director, Indiana University Art Museum, and author (with George Knox) of Domenico Tiepolo: A New Testament."If you found Blaise Cronin's first book on Bloomington to be perceptive, witty, and a little spicy, then look forward to an escalation of all three in Bloomington Daze."Kenneth R. R. Gros Louis, University Chancellor and Trustee Professor, Indiana University."Bloomington Days blur into Bloomington Daze in this second volume by Blaise Cronin, an immigrant like many of us to Indiana University. With his native Irish wit, Blaise bursts many pretensions of both Town and Gown, as at the same time he praises what is "best of both" in Bloomington IN. For those of us who live in Bloomington and love it, I am not sure which is better or worse, to be mentioned, or not mentioned (as Oscar Wilde might have put it). But altogether it is a joy to read."J. Michael Dunn, Oscar R. Ewing Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Computer Science and Informatics, University Dean of Informatics, Indiana University."The best laconic wit from the cutting edge of Blaise Cronin."Professor Sir Graham Hills, University of the Highlands and Islands, former Principal & Vice Chancellor, University of Strathclyde.

About the Author:

Blaise Cronin was born and raised in Ireland. Trinity College Dublin and the Queen's University of Belfast graciously granted him the degrees necessary to avoid working for a living. He came to Middle America via London (England) and Glasgow (Scotland). In one sense, he has never looked back; in another, he has never stopped looking back.
