Helping to spread The Great Derangement

For his new book, The Great Derangment: A Terrifying True Story of War, Politics, and Religion at the Twilight of the American Empire, Matt Taibbi went to a 3-day charismatic Christian retreat in Texas and wound up vomiting demons. (Ah, memories.)

In places there’s a patronizing edge to the excerpted account that renders it a little less effective journalistically than something like Jesus Camp. Still, Taibbi’s got a compelling story and some good and unusual insights into how that world works.

Having enjoyed his scathing articles for years, I can’t wait to get my hands on the book.
