The 2019 Perennial RAPHE Awards for Literary Achievement

This year on Joe Bush dot Net, we’re trying something new to round out the year that was. Instead of thinking about maybe celebrating the best of the year and then halfheartedly tweeting out what I liked, I figured it was time to actually celebrate with a fully developed series of diatribes on my favorite cultural artifacts. Ergo, let’s end 2019 with the first ever Perennial Repeated Annual Prize for Humanities Excellence!
