Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since it first went to press in 1996, BlackBook has established itself as an arbiter of style, and a forum for new and dynamic writing. The Revolution Will Be Accessorized gathers many of the magazine's strongest pieces, and the result is a star-studded collection that addresses the intersection of pop culture, the arts, politics, and fashion, with provocative contributions from many of today's best writers, including:
  • Augusten Burroughs on Christmas with his mother
  • Jonathan Ames on his boyhood sneaker fetish
  • Meghan Daum on L.A. bourgeois
Also included are pieces by Neal Pollack, Sam Lipsyte, Joan Didion, Naomi Klein, William T. Vollmann, DBC Pierre, Emma Forrest, and Douglas Coupland, among others. Raw, edgy, and always insightful, The Revolution Will Be Accessorized is a window on to what's happening outside the mainstream.

Review:

"Great writing and fresh insights; recommended..." Library Journal

Review:

"A core sample of contemporary culture, offering a crystalline view of the passion, protest, frivolity, entropy, bitterness, romance and fear on which American life is built... Excavating this cultural terrain are some of the most interesting voices of our time, including Matthew Barney, Joan Didion, William T. Vollmann and Meghan Daum. A mixture of essay and conversation, the book is fractious, fascinating and often surprising." Erika Schickel, The LA Times
