I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains

I've read four of Klosterman's books of essays and one of his novels. This is a fun read and I really like his ability within the "chapters" to make an argument that is offbeat at first seem self-evident by the end. I was not on board with his definition of a "villain" at first, and might still not be, but within the pieces he manages to consistently forward this definition with successful examples. I enjoyed Sex Drugs and Cocoa Puffs more, but this is still really good. Probably not the first book I'd recommend for someone unfamiliar with his work, but if you have enjoyed Klosterman before you won't be disappointed.
