Humiliation

by Wayne Koestenbaum

Endlessly surprising and entertaining, Humiliation is an essay-in-fragments unlike any other you will read on the human condition. With a disarming blend of personal reflec­tion and cultural commentary, Wayne Koestenbaum walks us – at times cajoles us – through a spectrum of mortifications, in history, current events, literature, art, music, film, and in his own life.

The book’s timing, the New York Times tells us, ‘is flawless’.

‘The funniest, smartest, most heart breaking yet powerful book I've read in a long time.’
John Waters
'One of my favorite recent books: psychologically astute, verbally pyrotechnic, bottomlessly provocative, surprisingly funny, and immensely sad. An extraordinary meditation on nothing less than – I don't know how else to say it – the human condition.’
David Shields
‘Wayne Koestenbaum is Agony Uncle to your humiliating experiences in these short films dubbed “the mother of all book trailers”.’
New York Observer
