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 college and white American intellectual values are the waters in which I have always steeped So perhaps when I say something utterly subjective like those essays are extremely bad I do only mean that they re bad to me and if I were a ueer black woman like B raised and taught and influenced in different ways all my opinions would be completely different Be that as it may I still am me I still have the same brain and biases and I will tell you this Jia Tolentino is exactly everything I fucking love This book to me is basically perfect devastatingly smart and endlessly fascinating and filled with essays that work that interrogate the modern condition from every angle and leave you gasping with new comprehensions They are deeply researched and wildly illuminating and also even funny sometimes when they re not devastating or brutal or so intense you have to put the book down and go take a dazed walk to let your brain synapses cool their firingsAnyway you don t really need me to tell you about Jia s brilliance right I mean she s written and edited everywhere from the Hairpin to Jezebel to now the New Yorker which excerpted one of this book s best essays Losing Religion and Finding Ecstacy in Houston As of this moment her release week she s on a press blitz so thorough that it s the subject of its own roundups and memes If you don t feel like scrolling through find her profiled on Elle interviewed on the Paris Review and reviewed on Vanity Fair see her food picks on Grub Street her skincare routine on In the Gloss and her dog on Jezebel I could go onBut you re here so go ahead and listen to me talk about this book some To wit In one essay she writes about how the internet has fundamentally reoriented the truth so that what s important now is only what s important to me The everyday madness perpetuated by the internet positions personal identity as the center of the universe In another she dissects the perpetual burden of being an ideal woman in the days of self optimization managing to tie together chopped salads the perfect mid day nutritional replenishment for the mid level modern knowledge worker Barre classes the rapid fire series of positions and movements resemble what a ballerina might do if you concussed her and then made her snort caffeine pills and athleisure tailor made for a time when work is rebranded as pleasure so we will accept of it She writes explosively about the harrowing history of racism and rape at the University of Virginia her alma matter linking the recent ill fated and retracted Rolling Stone piece about fraternity rape all the way back to Thomas Jefferson and Saly Hemings in fact no all the way back to ancient European youthful war bands wealthy young men who donned wolf hides and roved the forests looking for maidens to snatch until they came of age and went home to find wives She also writes about difficult women in a piece that considers everyone from Kim Kardashian to Madonna to Hope Hicks I feel as if feminist praxis has turned to acid and eaten through the floor It s as if what s signified sexism itself has remained so intractable that we ve mostly given up on rooting out its actual workings She also writes about the lie of the literary heroine the history of the conman the Fyre Festival her time on a reality show as a teenager corporate feminism recoiling at the idea of marriage and who even knows everything else under the fucking sun She is so smart and so savvy and so so good and I hope she s already at work on her next collection because I cannot believe I ll have to go back to reading other people s essays now

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 ways This is well worth a read I read it slowly so I could really think through each piece It is a rare book that encourages me to do that
