Now You Can Vivisect the Living Soul of Racial Stereotypes AND Get Your Fix of Salacious Gossip
This is CERTAINLY nothing they ever trained me for in Graduate School--nothing Jonathan Culler, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Edgar Rosenberg, W.W. Holdheim, Carlos Fuentes or Gayatri Spivak ever taught me in seminar prepared me for this!
Amazon.com, in a fit of marketing genius!, is offering humanity brand new trade paperback copies of Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucination of the "Mexican" in America AND a free subscription to US Weekly--Holy Ronco!, Batman!
When a recent Amazon.com reader reviewed my book*, he accused me of being part of the problem of the culture industry! He had no idea! No idea!
Let's see if next week, I can get BN.COM to cross promote Tex[t]-Mex with free copies of People or Martha Stewart Living--then the eternal damnation of my once Che-loving Marxist soul will be complete!

*"My only critique of the book is that it, by default and based on its format, becomes a part of the American culture industry: that's entertainment 'Chicano style' but geared to grad critical theory students... willing to pay the price of admission. "
