I show you my research

"Natural Born Celebrities" was the exact right book to get. I am pleased already with the way the author deconstructs "fame" and "celebrity" and also points at (somewhat inadvertently, I think) an important tension between the anonymous serial killer and the known criminal. Which is extremely relevant.

Also I can read it after dark without inducing nightmares.

(He's making me chase down articles in academic journals, though. "Dear preschool, can you keep the kids until 3 today? I'm going to be in Berkeley photocopying my butt off.")
