Summary
Over the past three decades, Dubravka Ugresic has established herself as one of Europes greatest and most entertaining thinkers and creators, and its in her essays that Ugresic is at her sharpest. With laser focus, she pierces our pop culture, dissecting the absurdity of daily life with a wit and style thats all her own. Whether its commentary on jaded youth, the ways technology has made us soft in the head, or how wrestling a hotel minibar into a bath tub is the best way to stick it to The Man, Ugresic writes with unmatched honesty and panache. Karaoke Culture is full of candid, personal, and opinionated accounts of topics ranging from the baffling worldwide-pop-culture phenomena to the detriments of conformist nationalism. Sarcastic, biting, and, at times, even heartbreaking, this new collection of essays fully captures the outspoken brilliance of Ugresics insights into our modern worlds culture and conformism, the many ways in which it is ridiculous, and how (deep, deep down) we are all true suckers for it
