Look what’s new at Bookslut this month:
This month we introduce two new columns: Culinaria Bookslut, which is pretty much what it sounds like; and PsychoSlut, which hopefully is not. . . . And in PsychoSlut, Jason B. Jones, also known as Bookslut’s poetry blogger and reviewer, will be rereading The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud one volume at a time. Note that “rereading” bit there.
It should be fun. This month’s column sketches the plan, and talks briefly about the transition from my psychoanalytically-intensive doctoral work to a community where the appraisal of Freud is a wee bit more skeptical. Since these will usually be linked to a recent book, there’s a glancing look at Drew Westen’s The Political Brain.
It goes without saying, right, that the column’s title is in keeping with Bookslut’s naming conventions, and isn’t some sort of weird confession.
