OR Books Compiles Liberal Response to Palin Memoir

When OR Books announced itself this summer, we were curious to see what publishing books with “a distinctive progressive edge, reflecting the new era of the Obama presidency and the economic and environmental challenges it faces,” would look like. We could have looked to co-founder John Oakes‘s background as the former co-publisher of Nation Books, as Nation senior editors Richard Kim and Betsy Reed have assembled an essay collection called Going Rouge: Sarah Palin: An American Nightmare which OR will release as an ebook and trade paperback perfectly timed to compete with Sarah Palin‘s Going Rogue: An American Dream.

Among other Nation regulars showing up in the collection: Katrina vanden Heuvel, Patricia Williams, Jim Hightower, Joe Conason, and Katha Pollitt ; Salon is also well represented, as Rebecca Traister and Michelle Goldberg contribute pieces.
