This New York Times review of Jared Kushner's, "Breaking History," excoriates the book and I'm here for it. Read these delicious gems:
- It's a title that, in its thoroughgoing lack of self-awareness, matches this book's contents. Kushner writes as if he believes foreign dignitaries (and less-than dignitaries) prized him in the White House because he was the fresh ideas guy, the starting point guard, the dimpled go-getter.
- "Breaking History" is an earnest and soulless — Kushner looks like a mannequin, and he writes like one — and peculiarly selective appraisal of Donald J. Trump's term in office.
- This book is like a tour of a once majestic 18th-century wooden house, now burned to its foundations, that focuses solely on, and rejoices in, what's left amid the ashes: the two singed bathtubs, the gravel driveway and the mailbox. Kushner's fealty to Trump remains absolute.
- The tone is college admissions essay.
- Every political cliché gets a fresh shampooing.
And revel in what is perhaps my favorite line of all: "Reading this book reminded me of watching a cat lick a dog's eye goo." Honestly, this roasting is the very least Kushner deserves. I for one will NOT be reading his book. But I thoroughly enjoyed this review!
