So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
"I first read an excerpt of Ronson's book in the NY Times and was fascinated by his account of the fate of Justine Sacco, the public relations firm employee who made an ill-advised tweet about AIDS and Africa in December 2013 that got her fired fro..." Read more of this review »
So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
"One reason it's so hard to talk sensibly about the current wave of online public shamings is that everyone's trying to take sides all the time; bring up "donglegate" or #CancelColbert and most people immediately line up behind opposing barricades..." Read more of this review »

“You fainted and I caught you. It was the first time I'd supported a human. You had such heavy bones. I put myself between you and gravity. Impossible.”
Elizabeth Knox, The Vintner's Luck

“Happiness had never been like this before. Now it came like sun showers, the sun and the rain together. Happiness was happier than it had been - sharp, piercing, and snatched, like a breath while swimming in surf.”
Elizabeth Knox, Dreamhunter

“Imagine a very long time passing - and I find my way out, following someone who already knows how to leave Hell. And God says to me on Earth for the first time, "Xas!" in a tone of discovery, as if I'm a misplaced pair of spectacles or a stray dog. And he puts it to me that he wants me in Heaven. But Lucifer has doubled back - it was him I followed - to find me, where I am, in a forest, smitten, because the Lord has noticed me, and I'm overcome, as hopeless as your dog Josie whom you got rid of because she loved me.' Xas glared at Sobran. Then he drew a breath - all had been said on only three. He went on: 'Lucifer says to God the He can't have me. And at this I sit up and tell Lucifer that I didn't even think he knew my name, then say to God no thank you - very insolent this - and that Hell is endurable so long as the books keep appearing.”
Elizabeth Knox, The Vintner's Luck
