  The work in question is Rieff’s book My Life among the Deathworks, and Moser’s claim that Rieff made condescending remarks about Lincoln in Deathworks is indefensible. Anyone with any experience of Rieff’s thought knows that the highest praise Rieff can give anyone is to call him a prophet or a “sacred messenger.”. While Rieff described the profane hip-hop group 2 Live Crew in apocalyptic terms in his book My Life among the Deathworks (), Sontag claimed in a interview to have learned only recently.

Intriguingly, My Life Among the Deathworks is dedicated to her. Rieff’s masterful first book, Freud, the glorious byproduct of his labors as the general editor of the Freud papers, is one of the most lucid interpretations of a major thinker ever written. There are many Freuds, of course.   The first book is titled “My Life Among the Deathworks.” A “deathwork” — one of the radically new concepts for understanding culture that Rieff unveils — is a product of a culture’s highest values that undermines and destroys the values it came from.
