HIGH FIDELITY meets THE MULLET in this deliriously funny memoir of growing up a metal-head in 1980s North Dakota. The year is 1983, and Chuck Klosterman just wants to rock. But he's got problems. For one, he's in the fifth grade. For another, he lives in rural North Dakota. Worst of all, his parents aren't exactly down with the long hairstyle which rocking requires. Luckily, his brother saves the day when he brings home a bit of manna from metal heaven, SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, Motley Crue's seminal paean to hair-band excess. And so Klosterman's twisted odyssey begins, a journey spent worshipping at the heavy metal altar of Poison, Lita Ford and Guns N' Roses. In the hilarious, young-man-growing-up-with-a-soundtrack-tradition, FARGO ROCK CITY chronicles Klosterman's formative years through the lens of heavy metal, the irony-deficient genre that, for better or worse, dominated the pop charts throughout the 1980s. For readers of Dave Eggers, Lester Bangs, and Nick Hornby, Klosterman delivers all the goods: from his first dance (with a girl) and his eye-opening trip to Mandan with the debate team; to his list of 'essential' albums; and his thoughtful analysis of the similarities between Guns 'n' Roses' 'Lies' and the gospels of the New Testament.

Recensione:

'It's easily the most implausible (and the most comically agile) piece of
wildcat criticism I've come across in years....Klosterman's book is terrific...What makes Fargo Rock City sing, however, is Klosterman's
good-natured enthusiasm.' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
'Writing about pop culture doesn't get any better than this, or any funnier, or any more readable.' STEPHEN KING
'Klosterman's...sly, staggering prose struts across the page like Axl Rose in his prime.' MARC WEINGARTEN, author of STATION TO STATION
'With a style as hilarious as it is thought-provoking, Chuck Klosterman delivers an authoritative, impressive debut.' RONIN RO, author of HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL

L'autore:

Chuck Klosterman is currently a music, film and culture critic for Ohio's Akron Beacon Journal, began his career with The Forum in Fargo, North Dakota. He still tries to dance like Axl Rose when he's drunk.
