  • Generation X: Tales For An Accelerated Culture cover


A frighteningly hilarious, voraciously readable salute to the generation born in the late 1950s and 1960s - a camera shy, suspiciously hushed generation known vaguely up to now as twentysomething. Andy, Claire and Dag, each in their twenties, have quit 'pointless jobs done grudgingly to little applause,' in their respective hometowns and cut themselves adrift on the California desert. In search of the drastic changes that will lend meaning to their lives, they've mired themselves in the detritus of American cultural memory.

They are under-employed, overeducated, intensely private, and unpredictable. Like the group they mirror, they have nowhere to direct their anger, no one to assuage their fears, and no culture to replace their anomie.
