The Witches Are ComingA brilliant and incisive look at how patriarchy, intolerance, and misogyny have conquered not just politics but American culture itself.What do Adam Sandler, Donald Trump, and South Park have in common Why are myths like reverse sexism and political correctness so seductive And why do movie classics of yore, from Sixteen Candles to Revenge of the Nerds, make rape look like so much silly fun With Lindy West s signature wit and in her uniquely incendiary voice, The Witches are Coming lays out a grand theory of America that explains why Trump s election was, in many ways, a foregone conclusion As West reveals through fascinating journeys across the landscapes of pop culture, the lies that fostered the catastrophic resentment that boiled over in the 2016 presidential race did not spring from a vacuum They have in fact been woven into America s DNA, cultivated by generations of mediocre white men and fed to the masses with such fury that we have become unable to recognize them as lies at all Whether it be the notion overheard since the earliest moments of the MeToo movement that feminism has gone too far or the insistence that holding someone accountable for his actions amounts to a witch hunt, The Witches are Coming exposes the lies that many have chosen to believe and the often unexpected figures who have furthered them Along the way, it unravels the tightening link between culture and politics, identifying in the memes, music, and movies we ve loved the seeds of the neoreactionary movement now surging through the nation Sprawling, funny, scorching, and illuminating, The Witches are Coming shows West at the top of her intellectual and comic powers As much a celebration of America s potential as a condemnation of our failures, some will call it a witch hunt to which West would reply, So be it I m a witch and I m hunting you.

  3. Thank you, Netgalley, for an advanced copy for review I have been reading a ton of feminist literature recently and they were starting to blend together, so I took this nice and slow This book was fantastic, taking a place for me among the recent feminist literary giants like Feminasty or Good and Mad of the past year or so Surprisingly, I hadn t heard of Lindy or her social media storm and other happenings of the past few years, so I went in unbiased, and I was glad for it Firstly, this bo Thank you, Netgalley, for an a...

It s weird to know you re going to recommend this book, even when you have reservations about it Perhaps I ve never really connected with West the way others have Shrill wasn t my favorite and perhaps I m spoiled by having read and loved Trick Mirror Reflections on Self Delusion which was farchallenging to me as a reader, feminist, and white woman in middle America Sure, this digs into today s political climate, but it does so in a way th...
