Editorial Reviews

Review

“[The Narcissism of Others] is dense with information, but light on its feet. In seven chapters, Dombek turns over a topic that is big and slippery, trendy and hoary, thorny and funny: the charge of narcissism, as it appears in literature (Ovid, Freud) and the Literature (Alice Miller, Donald Winnicott, Otto Kernberg); on reality television (MTV’s ‘My Super Sweet 16’) and the internet (soupy self-help sites) . . . [Dombek’s] stories really land.”
―Gemma Sieff, The New York Times Book Review

"Sharply argued, knottily intelligent, darkly funny"
―Jennifer Schuessler, The New York Times

“Is excessive self-love a scourge of the 21st century? Dombek, a wonderfully nuanced essayist, takes on our collective egotism in this piercing and surprisingly funny book.”
O, The Oprah magazine

“I read this book in a day―spellbound, blinded even to my own reflection in the darkened subway windows―and I was grateful it was so compelling, because I was already impatient for everyone else I knew to read it, too. Kristin Dombek’s soul-stethoscope is wholly her own, an instrument of precision and tender curiosity.”
―Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams

“When it comes to the vital essayistic subject of What It’s Like to Be Alive in Our Time, Kristin Dombek is one of the smartest and most thoughtful writers out there. Her work is always considered, erudite, savvy, personal, and wide-ranging. She really took one for the team by doing a whole book on narcissism―an occasion for gratitude and celebration.”
―Elif Batuman, author of The Possessed

The Selfishness of Others is the strangest and most wonderful book I’ve read this year. It sees with visionary clarity in muddy waters. Love, hatred, the Internet, psychology, egotism―it plunges us into their mysteries. A tour de force and a masterpiece of comic intellect.”
―Mark Greif, author of The Age of the Crisis of Man
