about

A funny, fierce, and uninhibited musical chronicle of the convulsive past six years from one of our finest cultural critics
 
"A one-of-a-kind guide to rock music’s resonance in every aspect of our lives.”—David Kirby, Wall Street Journal

 
“A smart set of suggestions for further reading, viewing, and listening by a most trustworthy guide.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
For the past thirty-five years, celebrated author Greil Marcus has applied his unmatched critical apparatus to everything from music, television, radio, and politics to overheard comments, advertisements, and happenstance street encounters—an eclectic collection of what he calls “everyday culture and found objects.”
 
This book collects hundreds of items from the crisscrossing spectrum of culture and politics throughout the tumultuous past six years of American life, an essential travel guide to the scorched landscape of recent history. Tracking the evolution of national identity during the Trump administration, Marcus spotlights the most whip-smart cultural artifacts to compose a mosaic portrait of American society, replete with unexpected heroes and villains, absurdity and its consequences, humor and despair, terror and defiance—as seen through media, music, and more.
 
Bursting with Marcus’s effortless, no-nonsense, unapologetic verve, this book features seventy-three columns from 2014 through February 2021.
Greil Marcus is the author of many books, from Mystery Train (1975) to Under the Red White and Blue (2020). He most recently taught “The Age of Noir” at Berkeley. With Werner Sollors he is the editor of A New Literary History of America. He lives in Oakland.
