    This is an outstanding, rigorously researched and written collection of cultural criticism I really admired the depth of thought here I felt like each essay was a master class on how to write cultural criticism I was definitely taking notes Some of the essays ran too long and could use some tightening but that is a subjective opinion I was particularly interested in the essay about the UVA rape case and the one about uncritical feminism and how it can flatten discourse in really troubling This is an outstanding, rigorously researched and written collection of cultural c...

    Recently my rad friend B and I got into it about Roxanne Gay s Bad Feminist, which I loudly do not like B argued that it was wrong of me to judge it so harshly because I was not taking into account the deep biases I bring to my own reading I remain unrepentant because those essays are extremely bad, but I do acknowledge that I am only a combination of my life s influences I grew up solidly middle class, I am a cis het woman and a Jew of European heritage, I went to a good liberal arts Recently my rad friend B and I got into it about Roxanne Gay s Bad Feminist, which I loudly do not like B argued that it was wrong of me to judge it so harshly because I was not taking into account the deep biases I bring to my own reading I remain unrepentant because ...

    I feel awful terrible giving such a low review because i was so so so excited for this to the point where I refused to read any press so I could have a pure unmediated experience but only like 3 of the essays in here were good the ones where she reflects on her own life Which is funny because I used to get kind of annoyed at the way she would unnecessarily drop in details about her life into unrelated articles la girl who went to Barthelona I think there really is an inherent difference I feel awful terrible giving such a low review because i was so so so excited for this to the point where I refused to read any press so I could have a pure unmediated experience but only like 3 of the essays in here were good the ones where she reflects on her own life Which ...

    I don t know if I m going to have the time to write about this in the depth I would like, so I will just say that I finished Trick Mirror feeling I d probably read any article Jia Tolentino writes about any topic, and I d definitely read her memoirs The personal stories woven through these essays bring the book to vibrant life The autobiographical essays tend to be the strongest, particularly Reality TV Me , in which Tolentino revisits her experience of competing on a TV show at the age of 16 I don t know if I m going to have the time to write about this in the depth I would like, so I will just say that I finished Trick Mirror feeling I d probably read any article Jia Tolentino writes about any topic, and I d definitely read her memoirs The personal stories woven through these essays bring the book to vibrant life The autobiographical essays tend to be the strongest, particularly Reality TV Me , in which Tolentino revisits her experience of competing on a TV show at the age of 16 this essay could easily pass as a brilliant short story ...

    This is an incredibly strong essay collection, brought down by a first essay that did not work for me and made picking this back up difficult for me But once I finished that first essay, Jia Tolentino gives the reader an incredibly well structured and presented collection I know why this was one of my most anticipated reads for this year.Jia Tolentino writes about many different things but always through a lense of feminism and internet culture something I particularly adore as a feminist This is an incredibly strong essay collection, brought down by a first essay that did not work for me and made picking this back up difficult for me But once I finished that first essay, Jia ...

    I really loved this I ve been reading Jia Tolentino s stuff ever since she started at Jezebel we re roughly the same age and she got assigned stuff I was guaranteed to click on, so I ve read a fair amount Some of her NYer pieces were even better, after she was freed from needing to write in Internet witty speak all the time and could show other ...
