Wilhelm Reich Pseudo-Bio

Kenn Thomas

Review appeared here:

My comment, submitted to both Wall Street Journal and San Francisco Chronicle:

Oh, great. Another mal-and-mis-informed pseudo-biography of Wilhelm Reich. These kinds of things are far more cynical in their exploitation of sex talk than anything Reich ever did. I bet this ranks up there with David Cesarani's biography of Arthur Koestler, claiming Koestler was a rapist, and Albert Goldman's lurid "biography" of Elvis. Sad sideline harping from wannabe intellectuals, apparently including this reviewer, way out of their league but camouflaged by the giggle factor.

Sick, sick.....
