Overview
- An acclaimed and thoughtful author: David Denby has been writing insightful film reviews since the 1970s. Formerly a columnist for "The Atlantic" and "New York" magazine, he has been with "The New Yorker" for the past decade. His nonfiction account of Western literature, "Great Books," has been praised for its intelligence and breadth of scope..
- A biting polemic on the cultural tone of today: "Snark" tells the story of that nasty combination of snide and sarcasm that goes beyond irony and satire to just plain ugliness. Snark erupts from the mouths of politicians and pundits, from bloggers and newscasters, and from comedians too lazy to be truly funny. It's the cheap shot that hits below the belt. It's everywhere, and according to Denby, it's damaging to everyone it touches. .
