The Corner

The one and only.



It’s been a while since I’ve used The Corner to plug my new book, Our Oldest Enemy: A History of America’s Disastrous Relationshop with France. That’s probably fine with some of you. But I did want to share this review, which appeared over the weekend in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. After all, how often do you see the word “guttersluts” appear in print? Not nearly enough, that’s for sure. And thank goodness the word isn’t used in reference to me and my co-author. We can deal with the New York Times book review labelling us fascists and Francophobes (see here), but “guttersluts” is in an altogether different category of putdown. Anyway, here’s what Vin Suprynowicz had to say: “Our Oldest Enemy evokes the kind of guilty pleasure you might experience upon hearing the nastiest new gossip about some stuck-up princess who’s finally been revealed as the most degraded of guttersluts.”
