Trick Mirror Reflections on Self Delusion Download ç 7 Review Trick Mirror Reflections on Self Delusion D it is to see ourselves clearly in a culture that revolves around the self In each essay Jia writes about the cultural prisms that have shaped her the rise of the nightmare social internet; the American. Here is who I recommend this book for Anyone who has been in a coma for the last ten to fifteen years a person who just discovered the internet or perhaps only recently learned how to read someone over the age of 70 or under the age of 10 who has a suddenly discovered interest in small and generally feminist happenings of recent yearsEveryone else you re probably coveredThere is nothing much new hereThis pains me to say because I like Jia Tolentino a lot I enjoy her New Yorker articles Is this just a way for me to brag about reading the New Yorker You tell me I like her voiceBut I did not care for this book much at allAlmost without exception there is not a single essay in this book that has not been extensively covered already in TV shows and thinkpieces and books and article after article after article I in order to air out my frustration and grievances and knowing I wouldn t get around to writing this review for 2 months or so jotted down a few examples of well covered topics that are here covered againHere they are very well tread literary analysis about female characters and marriage as in had I shown up to a freshman level literature course with this thesis statement most of my professors would have asked me where the snap was a rehashing of the events of the Fyre Festival which has already had not just one but two extraordinarily well watched documentaries made about it the events of the 2008 housing crisis which would have been bad enough except Tolentino chooses to summarize it through the plot of the already made film The Big Short so it amounts to a uick look through of that movie s Wikipedia page the founding of Facebook the number of books and movies and articles and documentaries and biographies about that alone the founding of Nasty Gal which yes also had a TV show made about it already a seemingly endless list of items sold on and their individual prices For no demonstrable purpose other than to say a lot of things are sold on after that statement is written the Rolling Stone A Rape on Campus article if you haven t read and heard enough about that already to make your eyes and ears bleed message me where you hang out I d like to visit and take a goddamn breatherWhat I m getting at here is that a number of these chapters include pages and pages of what is ultimately literally than summaries of very well known moviesAnd while that would be at best boring and monotonous even in the best case I could forgive it if we were treading well tread ground in order to get to a new point A cool argument An actually inventive thesisAnd maybe the conclusion of this that all of these and other pre established theories and thoroughly analyzed events coalesce into a culture of self delusion in which all millennial women live is new but it s hard to even remember that that s the conclusion when all of the essayschapters are so separate and so totally not uniueWorse they never coalesce in a satisfying way leaving each chapter feeling like a Sparknotes summary of something that happened in the early aughtsThe best part of this is 17th of the chapter The Story of a Generation in Seven Scams which describes the descent of feminism into a capitalist friendly GIRLBOSS subvein that encourages participation in a fundamentally uneual economy in order to demonstrate one s commitment to euality buying shirts and mugs becoming the symbol of economic ineuality that is a CEOI love this thesis Unfortunately I ve read about it in a far satisfying way already too in a Boston Globe article written by a classmate of mine whose daughter after receiving a shirt that said GIRL POWER asked why her brother and boys at large didn t have to wear shirts to remind them of their power Now that s what we call a good angle You can read her article hereBut I digressBottom line If you fit into one of the groups I outlined earlier there s no better way to play catch up on the last dozen years of pop culture than in Jia Tolentino s voiceIf not you may be in for a frustrating read
