Mike Lofgren’s The Party’s Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted has received an excellent review in Publisher’s Weekly, who wrote, “Lofgren has crafted an angry but clear-sighted argument that may not sit well at family reunions or dinner parties, but deserves attention.” George Packer wrote in the New Yorker that, “Lofgren’s ideas are trenchant and far-reaching enough to outlast the dog-bites-man quality of the original essay.”
