Morning after the revolution

dispatches from the wrong side of history
Nellie Bowles
Book - 2024

"As a card-carrying lesbian, Hillary voter, and New York Times reporter, Nellie Bowles fit right in with her San Francisco neighbors and friends -- until she started questioning whether the progressive movement she knew and loved actually helped people. Gently informed that asking these questions meant she was 'on the wrong side of history,' Bowles did what any reporter worth her salt would do: she started investigating for herself. The answers she found were stranger--and funnier--than she'd expected. In Morning After the Revolution, Bowles gives readers a front-row seat to the absurd drama of a political movement gone mad. With irreverent accounts of attending Robin DiAngelo's multi-day course on 'The Toxic Trends of Whiteness,' meeting the social justice activists who run 'Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC,' and coming to figurative blows with the New York Times' 'disinformation czar,' she deftly exposes the more comic excesses of wealthy progressives. Deliciously funny and painfully insightful, Morning After the Revolution is Slouching Towards Bethlehem for the 21st century -- a moment of collective psychosis preserved in amber. This is an unmissable debut by one of America's sharpest journalists"--
