A generous four stars. More like 3.577 rounded up for its weirdness, how it runs away from itself, ending where it began in a way that's textbook "surprising yet inevitable" plus not at all Hollywood. The story runs away from itself as the unnamed ma...more

Letters to a Young Contrarian by Christopher Hitchens

I could extract a handful of great quotations but generally found its subtlety muddled and the italicized foreign phrases snotty and maybe he used "tautology" too often for me to really get all psyched? How many times can "extirpate" be used too? A p...more
