A brief synopsis (with link) of every hack novel and fragment of pundit flotsam ever featured on this site. Have a recommendation? Leave a comment and I'll take it under advisement.

FICTION


Agenda 21 by Glenn Beck and Harriet Parke - On indefinite hold

The project that inspired the site, postponed to death by personal obligations. Join blank slate self-insert protagonist Emmeline on a tour through a right-wing mirror universe version of The Handmaid's Tale, supplemented by the paranoia of the notorious weepy crank who stole it and plastered his name on the cover. You'll never look at squirrels the same way again.

The Mandibles by Lionel Shriver- In progress

Whiny literary hack and Ayn Rand imitator Lionel Shriver leads us on a journey through the Most Realistic Dystopian Novel Ever. Follow an obnoxious clan of upper-middle class twits as they endure the bowel-voiding one-two punch of inflation and Mexicans. Remember, this is real art - if you don't care for the speeches and lack of a plot, then it's your fault for not appreciating it.

NON-FICTION


The Upside of Down by Megan McArdle- Completed

When you have enough money and connections, "failure" is just another word for growth! That's what we learn in this book by real life Veruca Salt Megan McArdle, a book that is absolutely not a rationalization for her entire unearned career. Using the bleeding edge in David Brooksian pop-psychology, McArdle proves that some people need to be allowed to get away with everything (probably not you, though).

The Road to Character by David Brooks - Completed

The reigning king of the Sensible Centrist hacks returns with his most ambitious work to date. David Brooks has seen a growing crisis of character in stats that he totally didn't make up, and he's ready to address this looming darkness through extensive plagiarism and college freshman-level essays on popular biographies. Don't have time to skim the latest bios yourself? Want your friends to think you're profound? This is the book for you!
