Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino

A collection essays from Jia Tolentino, Trick Mirror is a biting commentary on modern feminism, the internet, and the millennial dilemma of being progressive in some ways and complicit in others. It is sharp and self-aware and I thoroughly enjoyed the essays. Tolentino is a staff writer at the New Yorker and her voice is well-developed, balancing humor with commentary. The essays are well-researched and expansive covering a variety of social references to underscore her points.

My favorite essays were Pure Heroines, We Come From Old Virginia, and The Cult Of Difficult Women. This is hard book to review without giving too much away, so I will just suggest you read it!

I imagine this is one I will go back and re-read my favorite essays, underlining and annotating new points because they have so much depth. 💛
