Make It Scream, Make It Burn by Leslie Jamison

Staff Pick

Over the course of her career, Leslie Jamison has proven her voice to be a vital one in our contemporary landscape, and her new collection of essays, Make It Scream, Make It Burn, (Little, Brown, $28) is no exception. Admirers of Jamison’s past work in The Empathy Exams will be delighted to see her turn her critical eye to a new host of topics. In this collection, Jamison’s subjects range from the online game Second Life, to airport layovers, to a very, very lonely whale—but no matter the subject, she always circles back to the human condition. Jamison handles each of her subjects with care and understanding in Make It Scream, Make it Burn; this is an essay collection that never seeks to place judgments on the strange and surreal, but rather to examine them as necessary parts of our culture.
