Taking selfies is not the exclusive preserve of millennials. In Selfies, Weil gives a playful twist to the concept of self-representation: taking her cue from self-portraits by women artists, ranging from the 13th c. through the Renaissance to Frida Kahlo and Vivian Maier, Weil has written a memoir in pieces, that is yet unified. Each picture acts as portal to a significant moment from Weil's own life, and sparks anecdotes tangentially touching on topical issues… Switching from poignant to light-hearted in Weil's trademark irony and self-deprecating humour, Selfies is a sophisticated, 'delightful read' with heartbreaking tendencies.
