Eating the Dinosaur

Author(s): Chuck Klosterman

Current Affairs

This collection is an exploration of pop culture and sports that takes a Klostermaniacal look at expectations, reality, media, and fans. Some of Chuck's questions are these: Why does a given band's most ardent fans always hate that band's most recent album? What makes the game of football appear outwardly conservative while it is inwardly radical? Why is pop culture obsessed with time travel? What do Kurt Cobain and David Koresh have in common? Why do artists, athletes, celebrities, and just about everyone else respond when interviewed, even when they should keep their mouths shut? What makes voyeurism so interesting, and what makes it so boring? And, just what the hell is irony anyway? In Klosterman's new collection, the answers are hilarious and entertaining, and the way he gets to them even more so.
