Found in my rumbles through used bookstore stacks, a perfect trifecta of highbrow conservative cultural criticism:
1. Roger Kimball's The Long March
2. Hilton Kramer's The Twilight of the Intellectuals
3. Norman Podhoretz's Ex-Friends
These three are fun reads, particularly if you like seeing liberal (or according to Mr. Karnick, illiberal) icons receive their comeuppance. Norman Mailer comes in for particularly brutal treatment, as I recall. Podhoretz's is the most interesting because his book gets into the substance of his personal relationships with many of the figures he analyzes.
