Published: Melville House, 2/2015
I've accepted bureaucracy as a fact of life. As something to take for granted. As something insidious. Graeber's collection of essays explains why this is so. More importantly, he points us to new ways and tools to conceive of, and interact with, bureaucracy. This book left me buzzing with ideas and wanting to reread. One of my favorites of the year. -Alex

Book Recommendations

    This is not a new book. I fell in love with it several years ago, long before my love affair with McSweeney's ended. But just this weekend I pulled it off my bookshelf and started thumbing through it with some friends. We laughed and laughed well into the early morning. This compilation is filled with witty, inane, and hilarious lists... sometimes the list concept alone will have you rolling on the floor and unable to read it aloud.
    Excerpts from the list "Lesser Known Movie Prequels"

    -Borderline-Inappropriate Dancing

    -Four Bachelorette Parties and a Friend in the Hospital

    This hilariously satiric sneak peek into our country's potentially not-too-distant future frightens as much as it amuses. Shteyngart's brutal re-envisioning of our world--where our fates lie in our credit scores, books are artifacts, and youth and sex dominant every aspect of our society--will keep you up at night: first laughing, then worrying about what you were laughing at. - Robert
