the HUNDREDTH digest post
Here's a share link for the WSJ review so you can judge it for yourself: https://www.wsj.com/arts-culture/books/how-elites-ate-the-social-justice-movement-review-left-against-itself-ca60a317?st=gigjiv8npfpxh4o&reflink=mobilewebshare_permalink
I preordered your book, Freddie, on bookshop.org. If you're interested in "quid-pro-quoing" I should mention my new (Pynchon by way of Confederacy of Dunces) novel is only 99¢ on Kindle this week.
I don't expect you to quid pro quo everyone who orders your book, but I was inspired by the chutzpah of your "official response/AOC" post to see if you'd fall for it once!
Congrats on 100!
The review of your book is generally positive but also spends as much time trying to deconstruct you as a Marxist than it does talking about the book itself.
I think it’s an accurate review. It isn’t terribly kind to you. Though, it is a great testament to the quality of your books and essays that we both, apparently, enjoy your writing as much as we do while simultaneously finding many of your core beliefs ridiculous.
`...it’s in the Wall Street Journal.'
and written by an editorial page writer so exactly what you'd expect.
Summary: I suspect that it wasn't intended to drive up subscriptions to your substack.
Anyway, it's long (so you're taken seriously) and the reviewer can't write worth a damn (so definitely an opening for you at the WSJ).
I love that song! (In the post title)
