Chuck Klosterman - I Wear the Black Hat (Grappling with Villains Real and Imagined)

Just finished and enjoyed Mr. K’s most recent tome [Simon & Schuster-2013]. No surprises here: the book’s title and and subtitle are petty self-explanatory, and if you’re familiar with his brand of pop culture introspection you’ll get a kick out of this one. Otherwise, you might wonder how the hell does this type of book get published.

Speaking of which—a Simon & Schuster book by a pop culture observer that mistakenly refers to Jeff Ament as Pearl Jam’s guitarist (he’s the band’s bassist) and O.J. Simpson friend and attorney—and Kim Kardashian progenitor—Robert Kardashian as “Richard”, is a significant faux pas as far as fact checking is concerned.
