Competition Time!

Yes, it's a truly wondrous competition time!

The winner will get a personal thanks, a note of thanks inside the book and a free copy of the book itself!

But which book? Why, the one subtitled:

A Feminist Survival Guide To Politically Inhospitable Environments

And guess who it is by? Amanda Marcotte!

Who could resist?

You know, a few weeks ago, when Amanda accused you of being obsessed with her, I was "on your side" in terms of thinking that was a bit of exaggeration.

I've pretty much abandoned that view.

Oh, I wouldn't say that Tim is different than any number of good bloggers I read who consider Marcotte impossible to ignore given that she provides endless examples unintentional hilarity and poor writing skills. (Bryan Appleyard comes immediately to mind as yet another who cannot resist Marcotte's dual charms.)

I have not read the work in question, of course, but

Disgrammatical Gibberish

could be the winner.

What shocked me most was that someone could write that badly and make money at it.

And presumably there *won't* be any prizes for guessing the proportion of chapters devoted to surviving in:
a) the US and other free countries
b) Actually repressive countries...
