Our Favorite Book Title, Part 13

This month, the honor goes to Kafka Come to America: Fighting for Justice in the War on Terror - A Public Defender's Inside Account. If there are still any doubters about how Kafkaesque things have gotten in this country, they've only to thumb through any halfway decent newspaper (alas, a list that's fast dwindling). Honorable mention goes to Barbara Ehrenreich's latest, This Land is Their Land: Notes from a Divided Nation (the jacket cover has the word "our" crossed out and written over with the word "their"). You can review earlier favorite book titles here.

Kafkaesque? Who would used such a word in a lede?

Dave! What a pleasant surprise to see your name here. Okay, you got me on Kafkaesque. I probably wouldn't use it either. That's why you're a teacher/writer: you've got both bases covered. Thanks for giving me a little charge today.
