Karaoke Culture Dec 11 2013
By Jonker - 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.
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.
