In his latest collection, the widely lauded poet Albert Goldbarth explores all things selfish. Or should that be, 'self-ish'? Widening the remit of critical thinking around what the UK press has deemed, 'selfie culture,' Goldbarth discusses the modern obsession with ancestry, with understanding our own brain chemistry and with knowing by heart and being able to repeat our phone numbers and job titles. Goldbarth posits that taking photographs of ourselves is not the only example of modern self-interest, and gently and humorously examines all the other examples.
