ME | EM: One Listener’s Confession Reviews
Since the release of The Slim Shady LP, Eminem has been a mainstay of not only the rap world but of the wider American culture as well. In ME | ∃M: One Listener’s Confession, Scott F. Parker investigates the national fascination with Eminem through the prism of his own complicated fandom, recalling his early exposure, deep identification, and ultimate distancing. ME | ∃M is a creative and original mix of memoir and music criticism that allows Parker to branch out from Eminem to think about an array of topics, including identity, persona, race, and the nature of art. It’s like nothing you’ve read about Eminem before.
