"Uncle John's" for the Smart Set

I just got my copy of Rich People Things from O/R Books, and boy am I excited. Compiled from Bookforum/The Baffler editor Chris Lehmann's series of the same name on The Awl, each chapter begins with a charming illustration from Peter Arkle, then takes on a different marker of class privilege and rips it apart. Targets include Malcom Gladwell (whose illustrated fro is composed of tiny dollar signs), Ayn Rand, and the iPad. No chapter is more than 12 pages long, making Rich People Things perfect bathroom reading for those who subscribe to Harpers.
