Is brunch ruining humanity?

Brunch is a social ritual that’s inspired sweatshirts, think pieces and plenty of articles in the New York Times Styles section. It can happen anytime before 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It often involves $18 scrambles, cheap champagne, and perhaps a Massive Attack re-mix. The authors of a new book argue that brunch is a time-squandering, soul-killing hellscape that’s ruining the essence of humanity.
