From the publisher

The first collection of essays by groundbreaking cultural critic Lucy Sante, described by William Gibson as having "burning passion, and a prose style to die for.''

This first collection of Sante's essays (from The New York Review of Books, the Village Voice, Granta, and more) includes her unique take on icons from Arthur Rimbaud to Allen Ginsberg, Buddy Bolden to Bob Dylan, Magritte to Mapplethorpe, New York to New Jersey, and Victor Hugo to Tintin. Along the way, Sante takes in meditations on cigarettes, the invention of the blues, the nature of hip, and much more. With an introduction by Greil Marcus.
