            The Witches Are Coming

            By West, Lindy

            From the very moment powerful men on top started falling to the #MeToo movement, the lamentations have been raging from every corner: this is feminism gone too far, this is injustice, this is a witch hunt. In The Witches Are Coming, firebrand author of the New York Times bestsell...ing memoir and now critically acclaimed Hulu TV series Shrill, Lindy West, turns that refrain on its head: FINE, IF YOU INSIST. THIS IS A WITCH HUNT. WE'RE WITCHES, AND WE'RE HUNTING YOU. In a laugh-out-loud, incisive cultural critique, West suggest that Americans reckon with the dark truths that they've long left unexamined. She writes, We were just a hair's breadth from electing America's first female president to succeed America's first black president. We weren't done, but we were doing it. And then, true to form--like the Balrog's whip catching Gandalf by his little gray bootie, like the husband in a Lifetime movie hissing, 'If I can't have you, no one can'--white American voters and the electoral college and a few Russian troll farms shoved an incompetent, racist con-man into the White House. West unpacks the complicated, and sometimes tragic, journey and politics of not being a white man in the 21st century. She tracks the misogyny and propaganda hidden (or not so hidden) in the media she and her peers devoured growing up, a buffet of distortions, delusions, prejudice and outright bullsh*t that has allowed white male mediocrity to maintain a death grip on American culture and politics. At once side-splittingly funny and irresistibly thought-provoking, The Witches Are Coming provides all the kindling to burn America's restrictive and outdated social norms to the ground. Lindy West lights the match.
