ITEM#: 3005868From the author of the highly acclaimed heavy metal memoir, Fargo Rock City, comes another hilarious and discerning take on massively popular cultureset in Chuck Klostermans den and your owncovering everything from the effect of John Cusack flicks to the crucial role of breakfast cereal to the awesome power of the Dixie Chicks.
Countless writers and artists have spoken for a generation, but no one has done it quite like Chuck Klosterman. With an exhaustive knowledge of popular culture and an almost effortless ability to spin brilliant prose out of unlikely subject matter, Klosterman attacks the entire spectrum of postmodern America: reality TV, Internet porn, Pamela Anderson, literary Jesus freaks, and the real difference between apples and oranges (of which there is none). And dont even get him started on his love life and the whole Harry-Met-Sally situation.
Whether deconstructing Saved by the Bell episodes or the artistic legacy of Billy Joel, the symbolic importance ofThe Empire Strikes Back or the Celtics/Lakers rivalry, Chuck will make you think, hell make you laugh, and hell drive you insaneusually all at once.Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs is ostensibly about art, entertainment, infotainment, sports, politics, and kittens, butreallyits about us. All of us. As Klosterman realizes late at night, in the moment before he falls asleep, In and of itself, nothing really matters. What matters is that nothing is ever in and of itself. Read to believe.
