Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In graphic, devastating, and sometimes hilarious detail, Win McCormack reveals the true hypocrisy and depravity of those who love to quote the Bible but act like Caligula. When you finish You Don't Know Me, you will know for sure that the 'Family Values' phonies who have infected the GOP should never again be entrusted with the well-being of America."
— Arianna Huffington, author of Right Is Wrong: How the Lunatic Fringe Hijacked America

"You Don’t Know Me: A Citizen’s Guide to Republican Family Values by Win McCormack is really great bathroom reading. Organized alphabetically by topic, which range from the curious to the depraved, this book is the perfect reminder that the people who are the loudest anti-sex crusaders are often the ones most likely to be doing the very thing they oppose."
— Melissa Lion, Bookslut

"...a monstrous, Muhammad Ali-like jab square to the Republican groin. Win McCormack, publisher and editor of Portland’s Tin House literary magazine, has compiled an encyclopedia of 110 acts of sexual misconduct by Republican elected officials, upper-echelon appointees and activists who couldn’t keep their pork swords in the deli case. The book is knee-slappingly hilarious at times (come on, bestiality is funny) but also downright depressing."
— Whitney Hawke, Willamette Week

"McCormack’s book highlights the cracks in the paved chainmail, illuminating the repulsive truth of an exchange of political fluids for powerful gain with a series of squalid incidents and situations involving high-flying members of the Right Side of Life."
— Jordan Richardson, BlogCritics Magazine

"In You Don't Know Me: A Citizen's Guide to Republican Family Values, McCormack has compiled an impressive, reader-friendly compendium of Republican malfeasance that makes the good people of Sodom and Gomorrah look like Quakers...McCormack makes confetti out of the family values espoused by these pious members of the right."
— Ben Hogan, Portland Monthly

Publishers Weekly

Editor-in-chief of Tin House magazine, McCormack catalogues over 100 cases of sexual misconduct and criminality committed by Republican officials and supporters in an entertaining effort to expose the hypocrisy of America's self-professed "family values party." Readers hungry for a helping of schadenfreude will relish the A-Z illustrated collection of misdeeds featuring prominent GOP personalities involved in bestiality, pedophilia, incest, autoerotic asphyxiation and lengthier musings on the exploits of Republican heavyweights including Newt Gingrich, Bill O'Reilly and George W. Bush. Along the way, the author raises unintended questions; his crime blotter seems to speak less about GOP failings and more about the moral decline of American society at large. Indeed, the book's sample is so large that the evidence suggests something awry in the polis, not just the party. And while reading about Rev. Ted Haggard's methamphetamine-fueled romp with a male prostitute is hardly dull reading, the book's most compelling section is its introduction, where McCormack invokes Adorno and social science research to link repressed sexuality to authoritarianism in a fascinating argument that leaves the reader eager for additional analysis that sadly never materializes.
