Description

Using a range of 'case studies' from Critical Theory to Candy Crush, 'Gangnam Style' to Game of Thrones and Football Manager to Hieronymus Bosch, this book argues that we need to rethink our enjoyment. Inspired by psychoanalysis, the book offers a new way of thinking about how we talk about what we enjoy and how we enjoy what we talk about.
