I love this new book "All The Sad, Young Literary Men."
Here’s an excerpt from page 234 about how "the Left had failed to replace the deep culture of religion with a culture of its own. "When I attend the funerals of my social-democratic friends," the elderly editor of the journal had said, "no one knows what to do. Whereas at the funerals of religious friends, everything is minutely prescribed. It’s very comforting.""
I love the delivery of this novel. It’s the way my friends and I talk and think and act.
