Summary
  • Describes the various subcultures trying to reshape America today, and includes interviews with modern bohemians, who share their views on life
  • "Ann Powers, pop critic for The New York Times and one of today's most notable authorities on alternative culture, claims in this personal chronicle that bohemia is alive and well in America - nurturing new lifestyles and defining our tastes in art, politics, sexual mores, and all matters cultural. Weird Like Us sets the record straight on alternative America - a new bohemia whose dynamic citizens are re-creating traditional modes of building families, falling in love, having sex, and making careers, reinventing our shared values from the ground up." "So how different are these bohemians? Through stories from her own life and those of her fellow alternative Americans - artists, writers, entrepreneurs, feminists, cyberoutlaws, punk rockers, politicos, and queers - Powers traces the evolution of this world and where it has gone."--BOOK JACKET
