By Elizabeth Wilson
Ranging from Marcel Proust to tarot readings, from city making plans to interiors, Elizabeth Wilson investigates an underlying Puritanism in severe statement on concerns as huge ranging as Roger Federer and C S Lewis, Surrealism and model and the connection of faith to fan tradition.
She questions why excitement seems to be suspect, while customer society incites it and turns existence into leisure. She questions why there's such worry of elitism whilst while the enthusiasts of mass tradition are held in contempt. Subverting traditional perspectives, her indirect perspective offers startling insights on either frequent and marginal cultural experiences.
