it was amazing

I loved this book of essays. The title essay is a fantastic discussion of the cult of amateurism and the plethora of amateur performances available for public consumption. Ugresic has a catching, intelligent, and humorous voice. I look forward to reading much more of her work.

It kicked my brain countless times. My pending review will be full of nothing but praise.
