New York Times best-selling author Denby (Great Books), a staff writer for The New Yorker, here presents a detailed and enjoyable argument regarding snark, today's ever-prevalent combination of snide and sarcasm. He traces the history of snark through the ages, defines it into subcategories (e.g., literary snark equals satire), and divides contemporary snark into acceptable and unacceptable categories based on his personal assessments. Six-time Audie Award nominee William Dufris (The Futurist) gives a terrific read, his tone and pacing bordering on the snark-astic. Highly recommended for adult audiences.
