The Culture of Narcissism

A young man was reading this book in the train. I looked at him and the book...He looked at me and the book...We looked at each other without exchanging a word....

The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations is a 1979 book by the cultural historian Christopher Lasch (1932–1994) exploring the roots and ramifications of the normalizing of pathological narcissism in 20th century American culture using psychological, cultural, artistic and historical synthesis.
