How to talk about Zizek Press with your child – Day 2: “Concrete Underground”
It’s very complicated.
But you like your dollies don’t you? Little Gaga and the others? Right. You love the dollies.

She’s a dolly.
This is not the complicated part, sweetie. This is the easy part. Are you…
Anyway. Imagine if you were a really rich man like the man who makes iPods. Well then, you could have real people for dollies!
And you could do dress up parties, and make them put masks on! And you could make them dance…
Yes exactly… they could even dance with no clothes on.
And then remember how you melted the head of the doll. And you tied the other to your brother’s skateboard and rolled her in the river?
And how you sat and watched your friend cry that one time when you took her dolly away and hid it where no one could find it and when we did eventually find out where it was she had that cockroach living in her chest?
