A book for the Simpsons Geek in all of us 22 Jun. 2005
By Tyler Shores - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jonathan Gray has guest lectured several times at a class I teach on The Simpsons and Philosophy at UCB, and I whole heartedly give his work my highest endorsement. Gray's knowledge of parody is well-articulated and incisive and he has a way of conveying his ideas with savvy and wit. Unlike some of those other Simpsons books which have found their way onto bookshelves, this one strikes a balance between satisfying that Simpsons geekdom we all crave and a solid theoretical acumen. His knowledge and love of The Simpsons is top notch, and this book easily compares with the very best of the Simpsons books already published, such as those by Alberti, Pinsky, or Turner.
