Review

Praise for Chris Turner and Planet Simpson:

“One of this country’s smartest and most original pop-culture commentators.”
Hour (Montreal)

“[An] absolutely must-have tome for the many Simpsons freaks, not just an over-sized fan’s guide but an absorbing take on why it matters.”
Toronto Star

“Turner has written the definitive Simpsons study. He shows both a lightness of touch suitable to his subject and the intellectual rigour to grasp its vast purview.”
The Gazette (Montreal)

“[A] brilliant critique of western culture from the mid-90s to the present. . . . Turner understands pop culture in a way few others of his generation have been able to articulate thus far.”
The Record (Kitchener-Waterloo)

“Smart and funny, Turner is clearly one of the converted, and he writes with fitting enthusiasm for his subject while working in seemly references to cultural theory and TV-insider politics.”
The Hollywood Reporter

“One of the more fascinating and entertaining works I’ve read.”
The Globe and Mail

“A broad-minded analysis that connects the television show to some of the most pressing issues in contemporary life.”
Alberta Views
