The new sensation of literary New York. --Guardian
Benjamin Kunkel has pursued a lonely and taxing crash course in Marxist thought, the results of which, set forth here, are nimble, clear, and brave. He dedicates the book to anyone who can use it, which I'll take a step further: it's for anyone who cares about historical necessity, the crisis of capitalism, and our fate. --Rachel Kushner, author of The Flamethrowers
It's wonderful to see Benjamin Kunkel turn his considerable talents from the business of novelwriting to these political essays - models of the genre, with plenty to offer to both newcomers to and veterans of radical thought. --Doug Henwood, Left Business Observer
