I bought this eBook when Kevin first released it in Jan., and I have read it and thought about it ever since … I won’t lie. This is not an easy read – very difficult in parts to relive this past year, in fact … but it is definitely a very important book. Kevin Brennan is like the Daniel Defoe/ Samuel Pepys of our time, documenting day-by-day the shitshow of a year 2020 that just happened to all of us. But documenting those events on his own personal level and perspective. Like Defoe and Pepys, we get an Everyman account that, while being his own take on the daily news that most of us heard about at the time, is also a look at what Kevin and his wife did in order to keep themselves sane while all else appeared to be falling apart around them. Much as the rest of us were trying to do, to cope with a year like we’ve never known before and will, hopefully, never know again! Thanks, Keven for doing the tough work of remembering for all of us. Let’s hope we really do learn from history this time …
Kids, I’ve gone ahead and done the inevitable. I’ve reduced the price of Infamy: A Journal of Our Darkest Year 2020 to 99 cents.
I’m hoping that this enticing offer will move a few more copies of the book, which languishes in obscurity at the moment. I’ve entered it in the “2021 Best of the Obscure” contest, but the competition is fierce, and the grand prize is just a t-shirt that says “Obscure Is Sexy.”
I’m kidding about all that. There is no “2021 Best of the Obscure” contest.
Anyway. If you haven’t already overpaid for this account of how 2020 evolved and played out, drop me a dollar via Amazon and start reliving the magic right now.
Here’s what happened one year ago today, to prime your reading pump:
