Carrie-Ann Biondi has a nice review up of Kurt Keefner’s recent book, Killing Cool: Fantasy Versus Reality in American Life. I haven’t read the book myself, but have leafed through a copy (Carrie-Ann’s copy, actually) and found it interesting. Not sure yet what I think about it all, but take a look.
Carrie-Ann and Kurt had an interesting exchange here last year on the concept of “surrender” in Ayn Rand’s fiction. That makes both of them PoT-heads, though I suspect they’d be cool to that description.
