Book Description

Oct. 23 2011

Finalist for the NBCC award for Criticism.

Whether it's commentary on jaded youth, the ways technology has made us soft in the head, or how wrestling a hotel minibar into a bathtub is the best way to stick it to The Man, Ugresic writes with unmatched honesty and panache.

3.0 out of 5 stars Karaoke Culture Dec 11 2013
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The main essay contains many fresh and astute observations about the state of contemporary culture. They are delivered in a somewhat hostile, and more-than-somewhat elitest, tone that I did not care for. There are also a variety of shorter essays, probably originally written for periodicals, which are more hit or miss. A longer essay towards the end provides readers unfamiliar with Ms. Ugresic with important context for her writing by describing her (arguable) exile from Croatia.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Nov. 1 2013
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Interesting, entertaining, and more readable than some other collections of her essays. I would definitely recommend this collection.
