I used to sometimes buy the Baffler at my local bookstore and revel in its sharp, anti-managerial-capitalistic, anti-free-market screeds. Reading these pieces, most from the late 90s, feels like entering a time warp. The tech stock market crash was fresh in the writers' minds as they assembled the anthology. But somehow every economic crash feels very different, and many of these pieces don't have a huge amount of relevance to our latest Great Recession. Articles about Amway are always a fun read, and a piece on the slave-like labor of internships still feels relevant, because apparently the problem has only gotten worse. The NYT has written about it lately. Toward the end, bored, I began to skim. It was irritating that of 32 pieces, only two were by women.
short, sweet, and make you tear kind of book
