Today, that is, yesterday, I sat down and read in a single sitting Susan Steinberg’s Spectacle. It’s a spectacular collection of thematically- and stylistically-linked fictions, where the artifice of each construction is often engagingly commented on, and the semiotics of desire and representation are critically interrogated. Self-deprecations as well as witty and withering assessments of jerks in the vicious circle abound. Highly recommended.
