Waterside Productions Announces the 25th Anniversary Edition of Lou Tafler's Book "Fair New World"
Reviewers have ranked Fair New World alongside classic satirical works by Swift, Orwell and Huxley. What is more, as reviewer John Frary observed, Tafler set out to write satire, only to discover that he was writing prophecy. When Fair New World first appeared, the cancer of political correctness was still confined to academe. As reviewer David Smith wrote in 1994 "To the casual reader some of these excursions may appear too bizarre to be taken seriously. The truth, however, is more disturbing. Fair New World satirizes the actual daily life in a growing number of North American universities."
His direst prophecies are highlighted this edition's Introduction by professor Daphne Patai, who avers: "The world has not heeded Tafler's warnings, nor taken his wit to heart. Instead, readers of Fair New World on the 25th anniversary of its original publication need only look around to see how much the abandonment of wisdom, commonsense, and sanity has flourished in the intervening years." The Foreword to this edition is a delightful meta-satire, written by Hardy Orbs (aka professor Andrew Irvine). In the novel, Orbs is a politically incorrect philosopher inspired by Irvine himself, whose Foreword affirms that Fair New World is a "most serious outrage . . . as if George Orwell had collaborated with Kurt Vonnegut."
Readers who cherish our formerly unalienable rights and defend our hard-won freedoms will revel in Tafler's merciless mockery of the delusional radicalism and totalitarian ideology that has usurped them. Lou Tafler is the pen-name of philosopher Lou Marinoff, a stalwart defender of individual liberty, and a relentless scourge of identity politics.
