The other evening, I was dining outdoors with a friend, and a fellow stopped to say hello and tell me he was a fan of my work. My companion piped up, “You know he has a new book out?” This man said he was unaware of that. A few days later, at an event downtown, a prominent progressive activist whom I’ve known for decades greeted me and asked, “So what are you writing these days?” Another participant in our conversation replied, “He has a book that was just released.” The progressive activist responded with a blank look. He, too, was unfamiliar with American Psychosis: A Historical Investigation of How the Republican Party Went Crazy.
