About

the book certainly rips off the blinkers with its vivid and descriptive style; it pans the last elections and the divisive nature of the same. The book consists of various viewpoints offered by various personalities, such as Rebecca Solnit, Samantha Irby and much more. It enables you to look under the hood into the pervasive nature of misogyny and racism rife in America since last elections and pushes you to ask why?
