I was interested in the word “egoscape” used in the following paragraph of the New Yorker magazine’s (March 14) article written by David Remnick under the title “American Demagogue”:
“For a long time, Trump, with his twenty-four-karat skyscrapers, his interesting hair, and his extra-classy airline, was a leading feature of the New York egoscape. The editors of the satirical monthly Spy covered him with the same obsessive attention that Field & Stream pays to the rainbow trout.”
I can’t find the word egoscape in either Oxford or Cambridge English Dictionary. Nor does Google Ngram register this particular word.
While Murukan says "egoscape" means “inward pilgrimage of an individual,” it doesn’t seem to fit the context of the above paragraph to me.
What does “egoscape” mean? Does it pass current?
