A Book of Blogs? WTF!!

Former New York Times reporter and critic Sarah Boxer travels through the blogosphere (roughly 71 million blogs) and finds some masterpieces along the way. Among the bloggers in the anthology are:

  • an 18-year old woman in Singapore who likes pink, a lot
  • an editor of American dictionaries who picks apart the freshest words of the day
  • a Marine Corps lieutenant who was stationed in Fallujah in 2006
  • an illustrator who draws a tiny saga of a rodent and a ball of crap
Revealing and deceptive, grand and niggling, worldly and parochial, these blogs comprise a snapshot of life on the wild, wild Web.

Book News Annotation:

Boxer, who was the first web critic for The New York Times, travels through the blogosphere and finds some masterpieces along the way. Among the bloggers in this anthology: a Marine Corps lieutenant station in Fallujah in 2006, a 19-year-old student in Singapore pining for her ex, and a British pop singer living in Berlin. Revealing and deceptive, worldly and parochial, the blogs comprise a snapshot of life on the Web. B&w photos and illustrations from blogs are included. There is no subject index.
