Zando Projects, Atlantic Editions
A critic’s notebook on sparkle and spectacle. An Atlantic Edition, featuring long-form journalism by Atlantic writers, drawn from contemporary articles or classic storytelling from the magazine’s 165-year archive.
A collection of essays on musicians, celebrities, and aesthetic movements and moments that, taken together, characterizes the often used, yet widely misunderstood term diva. With keen insight and genuine admiration, Spencer Kornhaber illustrates how willfulness, pleasure, spectacular self-involvement, and a blend of love and hate define divadom—as much as singing-while-female does—offering readers an original understanding of an age-old phenomenon.
