There's a new book out that warranted a front-page article in today's "New York Times." It's 1,250 pages long, has no plot and no characters and is set in 5.5-point type.

The book is called "And Every Single One Was Someone." It simply prints the word "Jew" six-million times.

You can read the "Times" article here and order the book from Amazon here.

The author, Phil Chernofsky, had this to say about his book. "When you look at this at a distance, you can't tell whether it's upside down or right side up, you can't tell what's here: it looks like a pattern. That's how the Nazis viewed their victims: These are not individuals, there are not people, these are just a mass we have to exterminate."

Much has been written over the past few decades about the death of the book and the death of the written word.

This book seems very powerful to me.

And very much alive.
