it was ok
Read in August, 2009

Meh. It was a quick and engrossing read, mostly because it was enjoyable to read about what happens at the New Yorker and what David Geffen's house looks like. I basically skipped over the word "Nobrow" whenever I saw it because by the end I still didn't really get what he meant. Okay, high culture and low culture meet in the middle. So what? The actual cultural analysis seemed very naive and rudimentary. That said, seems like Seabrook got to talk to a lot of cool people during his career as a writer. But that doesn't make a book memorable.
