MYTHOMANIA – Some playful essays

In this collection of 27 playful essays about modern culture, some of which began life as radio programmes, Conrad illuminates in his own remarkable way subjects from the British Queen to the Kardashians, via Banksy, vaping, and the inception of the Large Hadron Collider. 

In Judge Judy, he shows a matronly Roman goddess dispensing justice with a fly swatter. 

In the metamorphosis of Caitlyn Jenner from Olympic athlete and paterfamilias into idealised female form, he finds parallels to the transformations of the residents of Mount Olympus.
