Author: Amy Holdsworth


“This book is a stunning achievement. In prose that is as graceful as it is compassionate, Amy Holdsworth gives voice to the unseen scenarios of care and relationality that television enters every day. How we watch television, she shows us, is how we anchor ourselves to places and people, and how we learn to be alone. Television creates space for holding our struggles and restores our capacities in ways that go beyond simply coping. This once-in-a-decade book reinvents the methods and language of television studies.” — Anna McCarthy, author of The Citizen Machine: Governing by Television in 1950s America
