Hi friends and foes,

Big news on the Baffler book tour front: Thomas Frank, Rick Perlstein, and John Summers will be on the west coast all next week, reading and ranting, signing and stem-winding, all in honor of our new anthology (of which we couldn't be prouder), No Future For You. Get all the details of their Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara appearances here.

This week on The Baffler online we featured Chris Lehmann's insightful salvo from issue 25, called "Brothers from Another Planet." Here Lehmann explores the meaning of fraternalism in national life, and its "gradual, ineluctable submergence in America's market-driven culture." We hope you like it, as well as the David Suter illustrations that accompany it.

Join us for one or some of those book events, if you can, and please consider subscribing if you haven't already - we're gearing up now to release Issue 26 soon, under the title "Sickness and Pelf," so the time is right.

Fare thee well,
The Baffler
