Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

Posts in the Jesse Walker category


I’ve been in a literary dry spell for a while. Bought a Gore Vidal book and barely touched it. And I haven’t bothered to finish a few other things sitting around. Can’t get motivated to properly dig into this quite yet either.

But there are a few newly available titles trickling into the market right now, and they have my interest piqued.

A few of them:

Thoughts, anyone? I like the title for Kimball’s book, which apparently came out last year. Reminds me of the name I gave to a tag/category cloud on this site long ago, i.e. the Permanence of Fatuousness.

UPDATE: Got the Kindle version of Williamson’s book. So far, so good. Very engaging read early on.

UPDATE No. 2: Williamson made the news for throwing some chick’s cell phone in a theater. The New York Post wants his hat in the mayoral candidacy ring now.

  • Steve Sailer: “The Dictator is Sacha Baron Cohen’s fourth and—surprisingly—funniest movie, a definite improvement over his biggest hit Borat. But critics, who raved in 2006 about how Borat exposed the anti-Semitism throbbing in Red State America’s heart, are now having second thoughts about Baron Cohen’s unapologetic Zionism. As the Great Girls Whiteness Crisis of 2012 suggested, during the serious business of Obama’s reelection campaign anybody with a sense of humor is automatically suspect.”
