Abstract [en]

This book is written for an academic and larger general audience, characterised by unexpected humour, conciseness, and its range of literary and everyday interesting examples. It is certainly a text that should exist on the shelf of any sociologist of emotions and love researcher, as well as cultural sociologists and digital scholars, due to its analytical examples of how digitalisation in everyday communications are shaping the self. I initially thought the book was about unrequited love, but it is more about melancholy love and its link to capitalism. The author uses Hochschild’s idea of transmutation to explain how emotions fall in line with the emotional script of a culture, thereby creating emotional labour.
