Reading List: Huxley's Take on a Repressed Seventeenth-Century French Town
|Amy Widdowson||Aug 11, 2017|
My darlings, here’s what I am reading this weekend:
Since I just recently re-read Brave New World, I’m continuing my Aldous Huxley kick with his 1953 non-fiction novel The Devils of Loudon, a look at sexual repression and mass hysteria in seventeenth-century France.
As Google employees are doxxed before a now-canceled company town hall, Nick Wingfield explains how The Culture Wars Have Come to Silicon Valley.
And on the same topic, in the New Yorker Anna Wiener wrote How Silicon Valley’s Workplace Culture Produced James Damore’s Google Memo.
Rolling Stone’s Bob Dreyfuss did a deep dive on the man who proves that even white supremacists fail up: Sebastian Gorka, the West Wing's Phony Foreign-Policy Guru.
Take care of yourselves this weekend, my loves.
