When The Culture of Narcissism was first published, it was clear that Christopher Lasch had identified something important: what was happening to American society in the wake of the decline of the family over the last century.

Frank Kermode

Ranging with much virtuosity over the whole of modern life, he finds evidence only of change and decay. . . .Professor Lasch. . .provide[s] us with a black survey of the way we live now, and leave[s] us to use all our resources of theory and skepticism to make the best we can of it. —The New York Times Books of the Century
