Agony Klub and Publication Studio Vancouver are pleased to present Whitney Houston, et al.: essays around popular music. Inspired by Bret Easton Ellis’s chapter on Whitney Houston in his controversial novel, American Psycho (Vintage, 1991), editor/author Casey Wei invites five writers to explore their own relationships to popular music, resulting in essays on Marianne Faithfull, M.I.A., Kanye West, The 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards, Wiz Khalifa, My Bloody Valentine, Patti Smith, and more. The authors use personal experience to delve deep into the ambivalence of fandom, mythology, appropriation, and appreciation.
