Against Happiness, by Eric G. Wilson

Posted in New Releases, Reviews by thisaintblog on February 2, 2009

againstJust released in paperback, Eric G. Wilson’s ‘gleefully misanthropic treatise’ is a critique of self-help manuals, armchair philosophers and contemporary cults of positive thinking in general. Long overdue and coming at the right time of year Against Happiness ends up being most interesting for what it has to say about the grouping of (mostly literary) personalities that Wilson uses to illustrate his argument. Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $14.95
