Review of John Jeremiah Sullivan’s Pulphead
Here’s a different kind of piece - it’s a review of a book of essays and reporting that I really loved: John Jeremiah Sullivan’s Pulphead. An excerpt:
Reading John Jeremiah Sullivan’s Pulphead (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $16.00) is like walking through pristine woods: just when you begin to get lost in the beauty, you hear a strange noise, and you turn around, startled, with a sped-up heart, and take stock of the fact that the woods, while beautiful, are full of terrifying mystery. You don’t forget where you are; you reconsider where you are and why you’re there.
Seriously, read this book.
