My piece in the Chronicle of Higher Education seemed to make a splash. There's also a piece out in the Washington Monthly (not yet available online... but why not subscribe?). I haven't seen it yet. I mean, I've seen it. I wrote it.... But I haven't seen it in print.
Most people seem to be responding to the book correctly: with thoughtful discussion. That's a great sign! Also a good sign is the I went up the Amazon sales rank today, which isn't bad for a book that isn't out yet. On the subject, my editor at Basic Books said she was holding a copy of the real deal in her hands. So it is starting to come off the presses.
It almost seems as if if flogging has already gotten more press than Cop in the Hood ever got. That's good, but also a bit bittersweet.
