Details

It is just as one-sided and unsubtle. Morally you could fairly ask what is more laudable about excess in the name of rage and resentment than immoderation in thrall to love and connection. The likely answer would be that Celine is conformist, quiescent, unsubversive. 'Subversion' today is sentimentally reverse.

Tens of millions of people around the world love Celine Dion. Many millions more can't stand her. Why? Carl Wilson, by no means a Celine fan at the start of his quest, searches for the answer in this extraordinary book. Immersing himself in Dion's 1999 hit album Let's Talk About Love (the one with that Titanic song on it), he examines everything from Celine's Quebec roots to her enormous voice to her tear-jerking sentimentality. As Wilson strives to understand Celine's immense global popularity, he faces the question of what drives personal taste - and whether it's possible to change it.
