The nineties : a book / Chuck Klosterman.


"Essays about 1990s popular culture, politics, sports, literature, music"-- Provided by publisher.
At the beginning, everyone's name and address was listed in the phone book, and everyone answered their landline because you didn't know who it was. By the end, exposing someone's address was an act of emotional violence, and nobody picked up their cell phone if they didn't know who was calling. Klosterman shows that in the 1990s there was a wholesale shift in how society was perceived. He shows how the period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Twin Towers brought about a revolution in the human condition that we are still groping to understand. -- adapted from jacket.
