On the evening of Dec. 2, I’ll be hosting an evening with Damon Linker and Jeff Sharlet at the McNally Jackson Bookstore here in NYC (and will be sending a proper announcement out toward that time). Damon will be speaking on his new book, The Religious Test, and Jeff will talk about his new book, C Street.

Friends and Colleagues,
My new book, THE RELIGIOUS TEST: WHY WE MUST QUESTION THE BELIEFS OF OUR LEADERS (W.W. Norton), was published this week. If you have the time and interest, I hope you’ll take a look at two excerpts.

2. In a terrific cultural webzine, The Utopian, you’ll find “The Impossibility of Sexual Consensus”:
