»I only produce shit nowadays,« reads a diary entry by Arno Schmidt, meaning: journalistic texts for newspapers. Since 1990, Dietmar Dath has published heaps of – well: journalistic, satirical, and essayistic texts and by doing so has created his very own fan base.

Like very few others, he manages to connect Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Bourdieu, pop culture to philosophy. Under headings such as horror, Marx, and actresses, this volume collects his best articles and an introduction by the author on a writers »day’s work«.
