''We call to one another in the darkness of the Internet, reuniting with hosts of friends and followers, but the act is all theatre.'

Grafton Tanner is a brilliant writer exploring the intersection of nostalgia, technology, and the rhetoric of neoliberalism. His books, including 'The Circle of the Snake: Nostalgia and Utopia in the Age of Big Tech' and 'Babbling Corpse: Vaporwave and the Commodification of Ghosts', have been widely acclaimed.

Tanner’s work has appeared in NPR, The Nation, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and Real Life. In addition to his writing, he hosts the fascinating audio series Delusioneering, which delves into the myths of capitalism. He also writes and performs music with his band Superpuppet, and is currently working on a book about the re-emergence of exorcism in the late twentieth century.

'Tanner’s meditation on looking back may be just what we need to dare look forward again.' – Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock
