The pathologies of the U.S. version are so obvious in the aftermath of the latest averted crisis that we need to ask ourselves whether it’s worth it – and why electoral democracy hasn’t self-destructed before.

Skipping the ancestors and aftermath of conventional biography, Max gives us the man, his work, and his times-the niceties of which (so complicated, so exquisitely intertwined) Max articulates with, well, Wallace-like lucidity and wit. Above all this is the story of a touching young man who insisted on being something better than simply the smartest person in the room.” ~ Blake Bailey

  57. “A different kind of pleasure surfaced in the aftermath, the pleasure of seeing the towers fall time and again, the experience of being entranced by the visual spectacle, and then also the very graphic forms of public mourning for exemplary citizens (taking place at the same time as the refusal to mourn the undocumented, the foreign, gay and lesbian lives lost there, for example). I am not sure that the guilt over the pleasure re-installed the good citizen.” ~ Judith Butler

A profound film that manages to confront us with the deepest sorrow while allowing us to be hopeful about what it means to be human.” ~ Nguyen Qui Duc
  60. “If an accident happens in a plant, the aftermath will be unimaginable.” ~ Zhou Shengxian

  61. “The Brightwood Stillness is a novel I could not put down. On the surface, it is the lives of normal people in trying circumstances. Deeper, it is an uncannily perceptive exploration of male psychology… Pomeroy is a brave new voice capable of taking us beyond the clichés of war and its aftermath and into the secret heart of every man. This is simply the best novel I’ve read in a long time.” ~ Andrew X. Pham

  64. “The dark aftermath of the frontier, of the vast promise of possibility this country first offered, is an inflated sense of American entitlement today. We want what we want, and we want it now. Easy credit. Fast food. A straight shot down the interstate from point A to point B. The endless highway is crowded with the kinds of cars large enough to take a mountain pass in high snow. Instead they are used to take children from soccer practice to Pizza Hut. In the process they burn fuel like there’s no tomorrow. Tomorrow’s coming.” ~ Anna Quindlen
  65. “The fears of recession in the aftermath of Black Monday have turned to fears of the economy racing ahead too fast, with inflation edging up and a substantial current account deficit… People understandably feel more confident about their future than they’ve done for decades, but as a result they have been borrowing more and saving less… Coming on top of a massive income investment boom, it’s all been just a bit too much of a good thing.” ~ Nigel Lawson
