Happy Warrior

A Pot of Message

by Daniel Foster

Not a week before (or maybe after) the great book editor Adam Bellow made the cover of this very pamphlet with a clarion call for conservative art, I met him at a fancy Upper East Side fête for our own Eliana Johnson, on the occasion of her umpteenth birthday. There were so many conservative luminaries in attendance (never name-drop; De Niro taught me that), it occurred to me that a well-placed drone strike could set the movement back 50 years.

Which would have been a shame, because I wouldn’t have been able to tell Bellow, between the gins fizz and the ritualistic immigrant flogging, that I thought so much of his essay was right on.

Send a letter to the editor.
