Nonfiction: “Let’s Talk About Love; A Journey to the End of Taste” by Carl Wilson

Part of the 33 1/3 series (details here or here).
There is much more to this book than you might think. Truly a philosophical treatise on not just Celine and her music (and importance or not); but on personal taste, crowd reaction, social commentary… The level of research was pretty impressive and the combination of sarcasm and thoughtfulness had a nice smooth tone. Doesn’t make me anymore interested in listening to Dion’s music, but that’s not really the point.
