A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | National Indie Bestseller

"I've been raving about Naomi Klein's Doppelganger . . . I can't think of another text that better captures the berserk period we're living through." Michelle Goldberg, The New York Times

"If I had to name a single book that makes sense of these last few dark years, it would be this one." Katie Roiphe, The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)
"If ever a book was necessary, it's this one." Bill McKibben

"Thoughtful and honest . . . Incisive . . . Klein moves her reader toward the truer grounds of solidarity in these times." Judith Butler
What if you woke up one morning and found you'd acquired another selfa double who was almost you and yet not you at all? What if that double shared many of your preoccupations but, in a twisted, upside-down way, furthered the very causes you'd devoted your life to fighting against?
Not long ago, the celebrated activist and public intellectual Naomi Klein had just such an experienceshe was confronted with a doppelganger whose views she found abhorrent but whose name and public persona were sufficiently similar to her own that many people got confused about who was who. Destabilized, she lost her bearings, until she began to understand the experience as one manifestation of a strangeness many of us have come to know but struggle to define: AI-generated text is blurring the line between genuine and spurious communication; New Age wellness entrepreneurs turned anti-vaxxers are scrambling familiar political allegiances of left and right; and liberal democracies are teetering on the edge of absurdist authoritarianism, even as the oceans rise. Under such conditions, reality itself seems to have become unmoored. Is there a cure for our moment of collective vertigo?
Naomi Klein is one of our most trenchant and influential social critics, an essential analyst of what branding, austerity, and climate profiteering have done to our societies and souls. Here she turns her gaze inward to our psychic landscapes, and outward to the possibilities for building hope amid intersecting economic, medical, and political crises. With the assistance of Sigmund Freud, Jordan Peele, Alfred Hitchcock, and bell hooks, among other accomplices, Klein uses wry humor and a keen sense of the ridiculous to face the strange doubles that haunt usand that have come to feel as intimate and proximate as a warped reflection in the mirror.
Combining comic memoir with chilling reportage and cobweb-clearing analysis, Klein seeks to smash that mirror and chart a path beyond despair. Doppelganger asks: What do we neglect as we polish and perfect our digital reflections? Is it possible to dispose of our doubles and overcome the pathologies of a culture of multiplication? Can we create a politics of collective care and undertake a true reckoning with historical crimes? The result is a revelatory treatment of the way many of us think and feel nowand an intellectual adventure story for our times.

This is a doozy of a book. Naomi Klein has for a long time off and on, been confused with another Naomi - Naomi Wolf, a slightly older “feminist” author whose claim to fame is that early in the 1990’s she wrote “The Beauty Myth” which revealed that, as a backlash to the feminist movement of the 1970’s, “the culture” and “society” forced ambitious young women to strive for unattainable standards of beauty and thinness to keep them from achieving equality with men. Not exactly breaking news, but at the time her book was a blockbuster. The success seems to have gone to her head and over the years she cranked out more shallow cultural and and historical critiques until in about 2018 or so she published “Outrages”, in which she claimed to have uncovered evidence that in England throughout the 1800’s gay men were put to death for their homosexuality. It turns out that she had completely misinterpreted the documents she researched and she was embarrassingly and very publicly outed on television by a journalist interviewing her about the book. After that, her career as she had known it was over. Enter Covid and what did she do? Nothing less than transform (doppelgang?) herself into a raging anti-vax, anti-mask lunatic conspiracy theorist who appeared all the time on the Steve Bannon podcast and became a social media stunt performer and darling of that “movement”.

Meanwhile, Naomi Klein had become known in her own right as a very well-respected journalist, leftist critic, and commentator-upon global capitalism and had written many books of her own (notably “The Shock Doctrine”). Since Klein and Wolf had occupied somewhat adjacent spaces in the realm of ideas, during lockdown Klein was bombarded online with post after post and tweet after tweet clearly meant for Wolf. Klein became somewhat obsessed with her, and this is the setup for her trip to what she calls the “Mirror World” of her doppelganger (Wolf) in which facts are not facts, freedom is not freedom, the common good is not good, and a host of other things - a real magical mystery tour. Into this very large landscape, Klein brings in analyses of: autism, “disabled” people, eugenics, the “wellness” movement, Nazism, climate change, ethnic cleansing and genocide of indigenous peoples, capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profit and growth that requires constant exploitation and destruction, the Israel/Palestinian conflict, and a whole lot of other stuff. Does it all hang together? No, not really, but I found it enlightening and exhilarating in many ways. The ending is fairyland.

Naomi Klein's Doppelganger is a thought-provoking chronicle of the emergent political dynamic fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic. It centres around social media's erroneous conflation between the author and the oft-controversial Naomi Wolf. In this case of mistaken identity and nonfactual truths, Klein delves deep into the mirror world providing a meta-analysis of the phenomenon of social media, conspiracy thinking, and the inherent risks of our collective digital embodiment. - Sam ( )

From the personal to the political: a story of two Naomis develops into an interesting and and alarming look at the movements developing around conspiracy theories and at the alt right, especially in the US/North America. Klein's starting point is the constant confusion between herself and a slightly older activist writer with the same first name, Naomi Wolf. Her aim is not just to explore their biographical and political differences though, it is to examine the mirror world of conspiracy theories and the alt right to work out a way to fight against it, to rebuild a more collective struggle for change.

I have acquired several of Naomi Klein's books but this is the first one I've actually read, courtesy of the library. Time to dig out my copies of the others. ( )

This is excellent, yet hard to pin down. A bit like matter and anti-matter, opposite things that seemingly can't exist together but are more alike than we might imagine. This touches on so many topics, from the conspiracy theories of the pandemic to the conflict in Palestine, the way each of the topics are explored is so excellent and thoughtful. ( )

In Doppelganger, Naomi Klein explores some of the more unsettling aspects of contemporary politics and culture, taking as her jumping-off point how frequently she herself has been confused in recent years with feminist-turned-conspiracy theorist Naomi Wolf. Conspiracy theories and doppelgangers/doubling have abounded in recent years, and Klein is at her strongest when she explores how we are all susceptible to manipulation and to confirmation biases. I doubt it's possible to read Klein's grappling with self-examination in the wake of her "double's" mirroring of her without a certain queasy empathy, and she writes with admirable humour. However, Klein's doppelganger theme feels a bit strained and over-extended at times—are some points of similarity alone enough to merit the title of doppelganger? Contemporaneity and causation aren't the same thing, and I'm wary of grand narratives; then, too, there is the sense that Klein is spending a lot of time grappling with understanding those whose narcissism is both banal and obvious. Still, a thought-provoking read. ( )

In my defense, it was never my intent to write this book. I did not have time. No one asked me to. And several people strongly cautioned against it. Not now - not with the literal and figurative fires roiling our planet. And certainly not about this. -Introduction: Off-Brand Me
The first time it happened I was in a stall in a public bathroom just off Wall Street in Manhattan. I was about to open the door when I heard two women talking about me.

"Did you see what Naomi Klein said?"

I froze, flashing back to every mean girl in high school, pre-humuliated. What had I said?

"Something about how the march today is a bad idea."

"What asked her? I really don't think she understands our demands."

Wait. I hadn't said anything about the march - or the demands. Then it hit me: I knew who had. I casually strolled to the sink, made eye contact with one of the women in the mirror, and said words I would repeat far too many times in the months and years to come.

"I think you are talking about Naomi Wolf."
