Life at the Bottom

Postby Paul » 06 Aug 2012, 21:02

I own this book and have done for about five years. The book is a collection of articles previously written for City Journal and are all available still online at that site. So, instead of one sitting at one's computer reading them on the web, one can take them all together in an 8" x 5" binding and read them in bed!

I suppose one can easily read the internet in bed these days, without having to sit at a computer.

There is an introduction to the book, on typical TD style. The introduction, and the articles it prefaces are both depressing but darkly hilarious at the same time. One has to laugh sometimes, else one would cry. Of course, some of the stories are tragic.

The articles are as follows, split into two sections:
