An Exclusive Q&A with Tara Isabella Burton, Author of "Self-Made"
Great conversation. Definitely adding these books to my reading list. It feels like society at large is totally unaware how bad it’s gotten, how badly we want to communicate our “authentic” personalities and what this desire is doing to the individual mind, how seriously addicted we are to devices, how desperate we are to be seen by the masses. In trying to cultivate our self image without baring these conditions in mind, it seems to me like all we manage to do is uphold the worst aspects of society: overconsumption, egotism, capitalism, and the like.
