What did you love best about Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers?
This brilliantly told piece of history is one that no doubt many power people hope you'll never find out about. Wolfe's writing is so rich with humor and insight, and the narration is so good, you'll think you're watching a play.

If you could sum up Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers in three words, what would they be?
Identity politics pay
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was the Flak Catcher.
Have you listened to any of Harold N. Cropp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. Cropp's delivery is consistently excellent for non-fiction.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
That Lyndon B. Johnson created the victim grievance economy with its requisite Mau-Mauing and Flak Catching that we know and love today!
Any additional comments?
Although a satirical account of 1970s politics, the essays proved to be highly prescient and should enjoy a resurgence in light of recent fashionable identity politics movements.
