Hostile Questions: Camille Paglia
Posted by: Daniel Kraus

I’m not the first to be hostile to Camille Paglia. As the author of Sexual Personae; Break, Blow, Burn; Sex, Art, and American Culture; and Vamps & Tramps, Paglia is something of an expert at ruffling feathers.

Book Trailer Thursday: Panorama City
Posted by: Annie Bostrom
