On Michael Jackson

Some might remember the hardcover of this book, which baffled a number of us. There's a certain philosophic pretension that comes with titling your book On Michael Jackson (or On Truth, or On Bullshit, etc etc) and an aesthetic that comes with it. Whatever we think of this new paperback, at least it makes sense, which is something that couldn't be said of the hardcover.

That right eye is rather effectively squirrely. I find it hilariously shameless that "Pulitzer-Prize winning critic for The New York Times" is followed by a blurb from...The New York Times.
