Annotation Part cultural critique, part self-portrait, this book is divided into fifty-two short pieces. Though diverse in subject matter, the work is unified by one overarching theme: documenting the role of "remoteness" in Shields's own life. Shields's "evidence" includes personal vignettes as well as observations of modern American popular culture and its accompanying obsession with fame and celebrity. Some strong language.
