One Damn Thing After Another builds on the themes of word contagion and weaponized memes that the author explored in his previous book, 2009’s How America Died. Many of the characters in these stories have likewise been sickened by language: they exchange psychotic emails, adopt covert online personas, write fictitious book reviews and preach the authoritarian philosophies of Ayn Rand.
