Not Buyin­gIt

The Herald - Arts - - Books -

Dur­ing a frus­trat­ing trudge through the throng of weary New York­ers shop­ping for last-minute Christ­mas gifts, Ju­dith Levine de­cided she’d had enough and re­solved to get through the next year buy­ing only es­sen­tials. In a coun­try whose gov­ern­ment or­dered its cit­i­zens to go forth and spend af­ter 9/11 that’s a tough call, but Levine’s sassy diary is an un­veiled, pow­er­ful tirade against pre­cisely that kind of in­sid­i­ous pro­pa­ganda.
