Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vintage presents the paperback edition of the wild and brilliant writings of Lester Bangs--the most outrageous and popular rock critic of the 1970s--edited and with an introduction by the reigning dean of rack critics, Greil Marcus. Advertising in Rolling Stone and other major publications.

Review:

"Magnificent... To have him between hard covers and claimed for literature is a satisfying validation and a major event." Village Voice Literary Supplement

Review:

"A great American writer who happened to write about rock and roll... wild and funny and utterly unpredictable... Lester's prose pulsated with rock's own rhythms... a superb collection." Rolling Stone

Review:

"A cultural event... This collection rescues from oblivion one of the most distinctive voices in modern popular criticism." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"With affection and rudeness and fury and mockery, with prose that moved in gusts and swirls and pratfalls, he showed how music could be – for him as well as for less articulate, less self-conscious fans – an arena of moral choices.... Bangs was one of the best writers ever to appear on newsprint." The New York Times
