Book Review: Fracture: Life and Culture in the West, 1918-1938 by Philipp Blom

The Winnipeg Free Press last week published my latest book review, of Fracture: Life and Culture in the West, 1918-1938 by Philipp Blom, which (as I describe) looks at the interwar era’s “collision between reason and unreason in the face of mechanized, heedless modernity — the resulting wreckage of which continues to haunt our own illusory ideological fixations.”
