What I liked: It’s like “Catcher in the Rye,” if Holden Caulfield worked at The New Yorker and did lots of coke. Good use of the second person, too.
What I didn’t like: There’s really not much of a narrative arc, but. hey, the book makes up for it with lots of zeitgeist.
What I learned: What the inside of a magazine fact-checking department looked like in the 1980s.
