After months of mysterious and excruciating delays, it seems Richard (Lenin’s Tomb) Seymour’s “The Liberal Defense of Murder” has become a real, existing book.
I haven’t had a chance to read it, and probably never will, but the glaring misspelling of “defense” on the cover is not a good sign. (They had it right first.)
Nor is this (from a commenter at Lenin’s Tomb):
I did, however, have to scramble to find a dictionary after coming across a few words that I was not familial with, such as anfractuous and refulgent. Apparently this proves that my vocabulary is not as expansive as I had originally thought.
I think it proves something else entirely, but I’ll leave that up to the reader.
Of course I don’t expect anyone to actually buy the thing, but if you’ve received a review copy, or if you’ve thumbed through it in a bookstore, tell us what you think.
Does Harry’s Place get any shout-outs? Does Seymour take the trouble to define “murder” before he accuses us liberals of defending it?
