Original Sin: a Cultural History is now available. Get ‘em while they’re hot.
I should have pulled an Yglesias and spent the past few weeks explaining how every day’s news provides yet more reasons to buy my book — and indeed I could do so with more justification than the Big Y, since human depravity pretty much is every day’s news — but I, um, forgot. Remind me in the future to make sure my books do not come out at the end of a semester. I’m wiped out, but hope to resume posting soon.
