What is the relationship between Marie Kondo and many modern novels? Why do we get addicted to stories - particularly when they''re about serial killers? Seven years after #metoo, how can we have the sex we really want? Is it ok to think Troll 2 is a good film? In All Things Are Too Small, virtuoso young critic and philosopher Becca Rothfeld turns her clear gaze to a series of interconnected cultural and political questions - about aesthetics, taste, literature, equality, power and sexuality. Looking beyond ordinary interpretations and conventional morality, she entertains the reader with her sparkling thoughts on subjects such as minimalism; mindfulness; the body horror of David Cronenberg; political and interpersonal equality; and why it is so difficult for women to divulge to men that they do, in fact shit. As intellectually illuminating as it is gloriously carnal and earthy, All Things Are Too Small is a much needed tonic in a world of oppressive sterility and limitation, and a soul cry for derangement, imbalance, obsession, ravishment and disorder.
Préface A spiky, funny and intellectually dazzling collection of essays about modern culture from one of the most talented young thinkers in the US, covering topics from sadomasochism to mindfulness to Sally Rooney
