AMERICAN PLASTIC Boob Jobs, Credit Cards and Our Quest for Perfection

by | Read by Natalie Gold

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2010

Narrator Natalie Gold provides a genuine voice for a book all about facades and fakeness. Connecting the phenomena of plastic surgery and overextended credit, Essig paints a clear picture that reveals the interdependence of these two domains in the context of American culture, media, and economic theory. Essig even explores her own presumptions and concerns about the practices, not disregarding them entirely but questioning their cultural origins. Gold proves capable at narrating complex exposition and nuanced arguments with deliberateness and emphasis while quickly transitioning to more genial and warmer tones when the discussion calls for them.
