A Life Out of Whack has two parts. The first part is autobiographical and sketches the atypical early life of a future academic scholar from family poverty to marriage and divorce at nineteen, from eight years in big-city and federal law enforcement to starting college at the age of twenty-six, culminating with a doctoral fellowship in French Studies at Brown U. The second part presents an alternative critical look at contemporary life and ethos: aging, nature, corporate capitalism, and American, French, and global cultures.

Les Essif is the author of several dozen scholarly-professional essays and three monographs: Empty Figure on an Empty Stage (Indiana UP, 2001); The French Play (U of Calgary P, 2006), and most recently American 'Unculture' in French Drama (Palgrave, 2013). He lives in Knoxville, TN.
