    1. Lucid and enlightening, the essays of Jia Tolentino s debut collection Trick Mirror Reflections on Self Delusion consider what it means for Millennial women to navigate a culture of spectacle, scam, and oppression In sharp prose across nine essays Tolentino takes on everything from the troubling rise of athleisure to America s obsession with reality television, difficult women, and weddings sketching brilliant fragments of cultural history for the digital age, the author demystifies perpl [...]


    2. Recently my rad friend B and I got into it about Roxanne Gay s Bad Feminist, which I loudly do not like B argued that it was wrong of me to judge it so harshly because I was not taking into account the deep biases I bring to my own reading I remain unrepentant because those essays are extremely bad, but I do acknowledge that I am only a combination of my life s influences I grew up solidly middle class, I am a cis het woman and a Jew of European heritage, I went to a good liberal a [...]


    3. I don t know if I m going to have the time to write about this in the depth I would like, so I will just say that I finished Trick Mirror feeling I d probably read any article Jia Tolentino writes about any topic, and I d definitely read her memoirs The personal stories woven through these essays bring the book to vibrant life The autobiographical essays tend to be the strongest, particularly Reality TV Me , in which Tolentino revisits her experience of competing on a TV show at the age of 16 I [...]


    4. It took me a while to get used to Jia Tolentino s style of writing the essays jump around a bit at times and get a little stream of consciousness y but there are some real gems in this collection For me she s at her best when talking about social media, gender, women and media, but I found something to admire or enjoy in almost all of the essays in this personal collection Thank you Netgalley and 4th Estate for the advance copy, which was provided in exchange for an honest review.


    5. I really loved this I ve been reading Jia Tolentino s stuff ever since she started at Jezebel we re roughly the same age and she got assigned stuff I was guaranteed to click on, so I ve read a fair amount Some of her NYer pieces were even better, after she was freed from needing to write in Internet witty speak all the time and could show other tricks and styles she had up her sleeve And I d say those two voices and experiences are about equally on display here, to mostly utterly fantastic e I r [...]


    6. RTC An essay collection that s Fresh, Brilliant, Cerebrally Stimulating and Boundary Expanding for this Gen X male, to be sure The New Yorker has to be proud to have Jia Tolento as its millennial cultural critic For the first time since I do not recall when, I am fired up about spending a few hours of my weekend revisiting several favorite parts of a book and writing a 5 star review.I am grateful to Random House and NetGalley for an ARC.
