The Other Glass Teat Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Other Glass Teat

Picking up where _The Glass Teat_ left off, these columns date from February 1970 to March 1972, with a May 1972 coda. Ellison fulminates against racism, sexism, and just plain idiocy in TV programming. There's a lot about a tussle he had with the networks over a script for "The Young Lawyers" (the script is included); his disgust over the "Our Little Miss" Variety Pageant, featuring contestants 3 to 12 years old (which has a certain creepy resonance, post JonBenet Ramsey); and being on Nixon's Enemies List. Best item is the story of his infamous appearance on The Dating Game (never aired, for reasons that become clear when you read it). Dated, uneven, but plenty of fun.
