The Nineties: A Book by Chuck Klosterman

Novelist, cultural critic and essayist Klosterman takes a look at the last decade before social media, wifi, and streaming services.

Ironic slackers desperate to never appear like they were trying culturally dominated during a time of landlines, newspapers, and TV antennas. While you might not agree with everything Klosterman sometimes posits with smug conviction (he’s one of those geniuses you want to punch in the face occasionally), he does have a theory or explanation for everything, generally more plausible than not, and is brilliant at tying everything from AOL to OJ, Allan Greenspan, Bill Clinton, Tarantino and Tiger Woods, together into a coherent whole. The world we live in now germinated in the 90s, and Klosterman is great at showing that.

On another note, I think this is the first History book I’ve ever read where I could clearly remember the times and everything discussed. I truly hope his publisher has said to him “OK Chuck, The Nineties was great, how about you tackle the aughts now?” Now there’s a book I’d be eager to read.
