"This book offers an intellectual explication of each of thsee particular shows through a lens of individual self-perception as well as cultural identity that speaks to not just psychoanalysis, but sociology, education, and even media studies. In doing so, Jagodzinski provides, in a density that echoes Lacan's style, a sharp explanation of post-Freudian thinking."
