喜劇演員Aziz Ansari與社會學家合作,幽默剖析現代浪漫與約會場景。


Aziz Ansari近年來,在許多視頻上發表他對現代愛情喜劇的見解,妙語如珠,從頭笑到尾,這是他第一本文字作品,與紐約大學社會學家Eric Klinenberg合作,不只幽默,還有大量研究數據,包括從東京到布宜諾斯艾利斯等地的數百訪談,分析行為調查,並建立了自己的網上座談會,吸引了數十萬留言。

關鍵在這大概是史上最晚婚的世代,對愛情要求地最完美,每個人都在找他靈魂完美的另一半。愛情,不變,但追求愛情的方式與場景,恐怕與幾十年前大相徑庭。Aziz Ansari抓住了契機與核心問題,他知道,孤單的現代宅男女,也比任何時刻都更需要愛情的滋潤。

只是,「為什麼這個傢伙只回給我一個比薩餅的表情符號?」「他剛才寄給我一張奇怪的圖片,我應該確認這是甚麼意思嗎?」現代約會方式大大不同以往,尋愛的方式發生巨大變化,從過去經驗無法解讀對方意向,浪漫生活的變革無法用技術來解釋,你需要的就是這本Modern Romance: An Investigation

A hilarious, eye-opening tour of the new romantic landscape, from one of America's sharpest comic voices and one of its leading sociologists

In the old days, most people would find a decent person who lived in their village or neighbourhood, and after deciding they weren't a murderer, get married and have kids - all by the age of 22.

Now we spend years of our lives searching for our perfect soul mate and, thanks to dating apps, mobile phones and social media, we have more romantic options than ever before in human history. Yet we also have to confront strange new dilemmas, such as what to think when someone is too busy to reply to a text but has time to post a photo of their breakfast on Instagram. And if we have so many more options, why aren't people any less frustrated?

For years, American comedian Aziz Ansari has been aiming his comic insight at dating and relationships, and in Modern Romance, he teams up with award-winning sociologist Eric Klinenberg to investigate love in the age of technology. They enlisted some of the world's leading social scientists, conducted hundreds of interviews, analyzed the behavioural data, and researched dating cultures from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to New York City. The result is an unforgettable picture of modern love, combining Ansari's irreverent humour with cutting-edge social science.
