A biting polemic on the cultural tone of today: Snark tells the story of that nasty combination of snide and sarcasm that goes beyond irony and satire to just plain ugliness. Snark erupts from the mouths of politicians and pundits, from bloggers and newscasters, and from comedians too lazy to be truly funny. It¿s the cheap shot that hits below the belt. It¿s everywhere, and according to Denby, it¿s damaging to everyone it touches.

Thought I was the only one who noticed snark. Truly does ruin conversations and hurts my feelings, lol. Author seems to focus on political writers and journalists, but I see this as a terrible epidemic among 'common folk' like us. If you've seen the look, you know it, and you probably hate it like me. Or at least I hope you do. Maybe you're a snarker. Didn't read much of the book, but I am intrigued.
