And upcoming appearances
If people are angry, then you're saying something that needs to be said!
Would love to see you do an event in Nottingham!
I'd suggest that the "leftist" who are getting angry aren't real leftist. Just people on one side of the silly culture war that is mostly just a distraction from the real issues. Hopefully you can snap a few people out of it and rally others behind something that may affect positive change.
That some “leftists” are quite angry the book is even being published tells you all you need to know about them. What is wrong with these people?
Rhyd, I have already received and read "Here Be Monsters." Your book is significant, exceptionally helpful, well thought through, and I have been referring to it in conversations and to other people for their own use. It is the best book to have read following up on "Caliban and the Witch." They make an excellent reading set. That your book helped me sort out my own feelings having been attacked for the last two years on identitarian smears to me personally (racism and queer arguments--I'm white and all of my descendants are Black, and I'm gay who thinks there certainly is a difference between males and females!) highlights for me its potential personal as well as its necessary social impact. Congratulations! In the 1960s I was so far to the left the John Birch Society was warning my college professors about me. And now the "new" left, too? Pha! Let them all fume. The rest of us have real work to do for real people.
This writing brought to mind the poem, Bread and Roses, a poem that brings tears to me whenever I read it. The poem became associated with the 1912 textile worker strike in Massachusetts. Those “leftists” you refer to live in a world alien from the spirit of that poem. Here it is to read -https://www.marxists.org/subject/women/poetry/bread.html
Yes, certainly, I will write a review onto Amazon.
