Praise

“Marco D’Eramo deconstructs the politics of sightseeing, and the search for authenticity within it.”
New York Times Book Review

The World in a Selfie is digressive, the chapters like a series of meditations that touch on various aspects of travel and tourism.”
—Sophie Haigney, New Republic

“Readable, well-researched and well-written.”
Mik Sabiers, Morning Star

“Thought-provoking … This is an intriguing book for sociologists and economists, as well as for serious travelers wishing to understand their impact as they once again move about the globe.”
Cindy Pauldine, Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

“A bracing, provocative examination of an all-too-human pastime.”
Benjamin Shull, Wall Street Journal

“A fascinating journalistic approach to one the biggest influences on our economy and imaginations, The World in a Selfie spellbinds. A wonderful read for travelers and non-travelers in the new world of a pandemic.”
Champagne Living

“The truth is that tourists have always been unpopular … The root of the stigmatisation, argues Marco D’Eramo, is the resentment of rattrapage, one social class catching up with another.”
Tom Robbins, Financial Times

“A sophisticated, engaging, clever book.”
—Berliner Zeitung


“Surprising and unsettling, putting certainties we take for granted into crisis.”
—Internazionale


“Provocative and entertaining.”
—Der Tagesspiegel


“A work of intelligence and wit.”
—la Repubblica


“Fun and challenging, The World in a Selfie mixes the flavors of Mark Twain, Karl Marx, and theme parks to result in a real and welcome trip elsewhere.”
—Meredith Grahl Counts, Foreword Reviews

“A provocative take on the meanings of contemporary travel.”
—Jim Gladstone, Passport Magazine

“In a summer when all our assumptions about travel and tourism are being called into question, this engrossing book, newly translated from Italian, is the ideal guide.”
—Tom Robbins, Financial Times (“Summer books of 2021”)
