Book review: “Against Love”


Sarah Hinlicky Wilson, from her wonderfully satirical book review of Against Love: A Polemic by Laura Kipnis…

“Fascism with full consent is the best way to rule.”

“People in love are notoriously too distracted to go around changing the world.”

“Matrimony’s value is blown out of all proportion in our society?not least of all in our church society. One thinks of the extraordinary anxiety with which churchgoing elders regard the young until the danger of premarital sex has passed (with all too little attention to the problem of extramarital sex thereafter).”

“Pressure to marry is as strong in religious circles as it is in the latest chick flick, but the statistical survival of such marriages is no better.”
