Description - Planet Simpson by Chris Turner
Bringing the savvy insight to The Simpsons that has been bought to publishing on global politics, the internet and the fast food industry, Chris Turner looks at how The Simpsons is created and the unique two way interaction of inspiration and influence it has with the real world. PLANET SIMPSON begins with a detailed and engaging look at the birth and growth of The Simpsons, from its creators and writers to its best episodes and hidden jokes. It then goes on to give an extraordinary account of the effect the show has had around the globe. From Marge and moral values to Lisa and the enviroment, from Homer and consumerism to Citizen Burns and coroprate villainy, this is the first book to be written that is as intelligent, subversive, wide ranging and funny as the show itself.
