Tales of Our Times, From Apple to ISISBook - 2016
"60 years after Roland Barthes explored the mythological underpinnings of 1950s consumerism in his seminal book 'Mythologies', our greatest cultural critic, Peter Conrad, takes up the challenge and examines the enduring place of myth in the 21st century. From the Queen to Caitlyn Jenner, from Judge Judy to Steven Jobs, Conrad scrutinises modern-day popular culture in his formidably astute but always entertaining style. The book is based on the BBC Radio 4 series '21st Century Mythologies'"--Provided by publisher.
