The Backlash

Will Bunch’s new book is out today, and I highly recommend it. (And yes, I’m one of the people he thanks in the book. But I like the book anyway!)

Will is a really good reporter — and I mean that as the highest compliment. His real strength is the ability to keep digging deeper, without losing sight of the humanity of his subjects. What I love about this book is how well he unravels the thinking of the right wing and the newly-minted Tea Partiers. As I said before, it’s almost like reading a good detective novel.

You can order it here. Or you can read an excerpt in today’s Salon here.
