Musicians and bands have been adored since the first notes were recorded, but it was Beatlemania in the `60s that heralded the birth of the SUPERfan - a breed of music obsessive that literally worshipped their idols.
Superfans examines the crazed followers and fan groups that surround the modern music scene in a witty, fun and tongue-in-cheek way. From Beyonce's Beyhive, the Britney Army, Gaga's Little Monsters, Nicki Minaj's Barbz to Justin Beiber's Beliebers - author Tobias Anthony goes deep into these fan groups to see what makes them tick.
Tobias Anthony is an author and teaches creative writing at a university level. He has recently completed a PhD examining the representations of mass culture in contemporary fiction. He has previously published From Ace to Zowie, Ginger Pride, A Very Modern Dictionary and Should I Buy This Book? with Smith Street Books.
