Humiliation is for Everybody


NPR Books is dissecting humiliation in this author interview with Wayne Koestenbaum (whose has a very recent book aptly titled “Humiliation”).

Humiliation is the only way to describe certain life experiences—it’s both familiar and completely unavoidable—but it turns out it’s complex, context-dependent, and evolving along with our technologically-based social interactions. You can double your interview experience by listening to the NPR interview or reading the article. Also, this is the perfect opportunity to mention that NPR Books has revamped their website, making it easier to peruse books by genre, plus a new homepage and good user friendly stuff like that.
