Book Description: 'In this time of great frustration, this collection is a clearing in the woods to meet, to reflect, to dance, and to cackle around the fire.' Abbi Jacobson, creator of Broad City and New York Times bestselling author of I Might Regret This From the moment powerful men started falling to the #MeToo movement, the lamentations began: this is feminism gone too far, this is injustice, this is a witch hunt. In The Witches Are Coming, firebrand author of the New York Times bestselling memoir and now critically acclaimed Hulu TV series Shrill, Lindy West, turns that refrain on its head. You think this is a witch hunt? Fine. You've got one. In a laugh-out-loud, incisive cultural critique, West unpacks the complicated, and sometimes tragic, politics of not being a white man in the twenty-first century. She tracks the misogyny and propaganda hidden (or not so hidden) in the media that she and her peers devoured growing up, a buffet of distortions, delusions, prejudice and outright bullsh*t that has allowed white male mediocrity to maintain a death grip on our culture and our politics - and that delivered us to this precarious, disorienting moment in history. We cannot understand how we got here - how the land of the free became Trump's America - without examining the chasm between who we are and who we think we are, without fact-checking the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and about each other. The truth can transform us; there is witchcraft in it. Lindy West turns on the light. 'Lindy continues to be one of the funniest, smartest writers around.' Jessica Valenti, New York Times bestselling author of Full Frontal Feminism and Sex Object 'GET ME A BROOM.' Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We're Never Meeting in Real Life
