Description

A mock journal from a deranged stalker obsessed with celebrities and the cartoons that depict them. Ah, what would popular culture be without characters such as Lindsay Lohan and Mel Gibson, along with the pop culture--centrific media that covers them? For starters, Doug Bratton's "The Deranged Stalker's Journal of Pop Culture Shock Therapy" might not exist, and, well, that would be very sad indeed. Inside "The Deranged Stalker's Journal of Pop Culture Shock Therapy," Bratton skewers pop culture icons ranging from Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie to Harry Potter. Fashioned as a mock-style journal whose author is just a little bit unstable, "The Deranged Stalker's Journal of Pop Culture Shock Therapy" lambasts the best--and worst--of popular culture, one cartoon panel at a time. From recent news headlines to celeb-inspired mockumentaries, Bratton offers a humorously skewed view of fame, popular culture, and American Idol-worship. So if you are one of the millions of people who often wonders what it would be like if a psychopath and his imaginary friend kept a journal of a funny-yet-obscure comic that will most likely never appear in your newspaper, this is certainly the book to read!show more
