MOUNTING A CREDIBLE RIPOSTE TO OUR TIMES’ IDIOCY
We are commissioning twelve short books in the great tradition of polemical pamphleteering. Mono-printed and saddle-stitched, these will be punchy, relevant, and fiercely confrontational. Each targeting a specific topic or person, they will be full-on indictments—smart, sarcastic, concise, assertive, non-dialectical assaults of obsessive ferocity. The objective is not to analyse, but to (intelligently, of course, and with rigour) impeach the target. If there is another side it’s not on us to present its case; like prosecutors who take clear-cut and unequivocal stances, so the series will pursue its topics with clarity and conviction.
Take your pick: the blockchain? pop-ups? Jeff Koons? corporate responsibility? drones? DNA tests? Whether big or small, there is really no shortage of contemptible nonsense that our era has furnished us with. As someone once said, “it may be difficult to define civilisation, but it isn’t so difficult to recognise barbarism.”
If you have a score to settle and would like to write one of those books, get in touch using this form.
