About this book

Reality Television, Affect and Intimacy explains the appeal of reality television in terms of the affective power of the mediated image. In place of common objections that reality TV is 'not real', Misha Kavka argues that the feelings of intimacy engendered by unscripted drama are both real and socially informative.
