Description: From one of America's most original cultural critics, the story of how our bottomless appetite for novelty, gossip, glamour, and melodrama has turned everything of importance -- from news and politics to religion and high culture -- into one vast public entertainment.

Neal Gabler calls them "lifies", those blockbusters written in the medium of life that preoccupy the traditional media and dominate the national conversation for weeks, months, even years: the death of Princess Diana, the trial of O. J. Simpson, Kenneth Starr vs. William Jefferson Clinton, the Ayatollah's bounty on the head of Salman Rushdie. Real Life as Entertainment is hardly new -- as Gabler shows, it is older even than the penny press -- but the movies, and then the new information technologies, have so accelerated the phenomenon that it is now the reigning popular art form. How this came to pass, and just what it means for our culture and our personal lives, is the subject of this witty, concerned, and sometimes frightening book.
