From Little Black Cart

A lot has changed in the past quarter. The heat of summer finally abated and the El Nino rains have begun! There has been a noticeable downtick in drama around these parts and the fourth annual East Bay Book & Conversation Event went swimmingly. We are very proud of the titles we have to offer you this quarter and look forward to your feedback.

Topic of the Week: The Social and the Political

Much ado was made, a decade or so ago, about a book that criticized “the milieu” as being a place where a “civil war” was going on, with no useful outcome possible. It proposed abandoning the milieu, and returning to friendship itself as the place to do political work. Clearly this is a framing exercise since most people we know do the bulk of their “political work” in exactly the same social circles they inhabited before and after the so-called milieu became indicted for their lack of success.
