Whether her topic is psychoanalysis in the twenty-first century, Tom Stoppard’s heady plays, the semiotics of lip gloss, or the deadly seductiveness of fame, Daphne Merkin’s infectious warmth and curiosity have made her unique, even among masters of the modern essay. In The Fame Lunches, many of her most celebrated essays from The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Elle, Vogue, and other magazines are brought together in a single shimmering collection. An indispensible book for anyone who loves a good sentence.
