Read full description of the books The Glass Teat:
Lost my copy years ago and would love to find another. The Glass Teat was a column by Ellison in The L.A. Free Press in the 70s (I think). The collection is an exceptional example of Ellison's essay writing talents; abrasive, insightful and usually controversial. There is a lot of emphasis on screenwriting for TV and the TV business, both about Ellison experiences and his opinion of other writers, producers and shows. I do get the feeling that Ellison must have been hell to work with on a set. Yet, these columns are always entertaining and informative. It helps if you seen or are at least familiar with the TV series he discusses as most are now relics of the times. However the collection remains a good example of one of the best essayists in the later 20th century.
