A Foray into Toxic American Celebrity Obsessed Culture
on September 4, 2017
I read this as an entry point into Gary Indiana's style. His style is frenetic and more inclined to those who are willing to think about words. His style, as others have written, is not full of run on sentences. It is getting into the mind of a very troubled individual. It is written part stream of consciousness (from the mind of Cunanan), and part police case file. The author's foray into the consciousness of Andrew Cunanan as well as some of the events in Cunanan's life, culminates in Cunanan's much publicized murder spree. He goes out of his way to emphasize that there were other humans murdered besides Gianni Versace (though the celebrity obsessed news media tends to obliterate those other murders). All in all, a good read for those interested in Gary Indiana's writing as well as those interested in the toxic effects fame and celebrity have for American culture.
