Vicky Osterweil is desperate for your attention. Again.
You may remember that Osterweil (a born male who identifies as female) was briefly famous last summer when the antifa-loving author had the felicitous timing to have a book called “In Defense of Looting” being published right as looting had briefly become the national pastime. This was compounded by an obsequious interview by NPR that infuriated conservatives and liberals alike.
NPR would acknowledge its fault for that piece, as Fox News reported in September, but Osterweil was no doubt already a beneficiary of the Streisand effect. Even if most reviewers hated the book and the philosophy behind it, the curiosity probably didn’t hurt sales. Mind you, there was also likely a bit of buyer’s remorse. I managed to “loot” the tome off of a file-sharing site and after skimming it, well, let’s just say I was more entertained and impressed by “White Fragility.”
