    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 105.00

    Why are young people alienated from television news?

    Marshall Cavendish International (Asia) Ptd Ltd 2011; US$ 9.99

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

    “We tell ourselves stories in order to live,” Joan Didion observed in The White Album. Why is this? Michael Austin asks, in Useful Fictions.
