I’m not saying that in order to fully appreciate this book you need to have been born between 1965-1979, have once owned platform flip flops, feel that Seinfeld and Living Single are the two greatest sitcoms of the decade, and remember exactly where you were when you heard the news about Kurt Cobain, but it helps. I adored this book and wanted to hug it for all the reminiscing it conjured.
These two Klosterman quotes from The Nineties should give you a taste:
“There’s no evidence that people of the 1990s wanted clear versions of beverages that were readily available in non-clear form.”
“The nineties were the last decade in history where personal and political engagement were still considered optional.”
Ah, the halcyon days of flannel and thin eyebrows. I miss you.
For fans of choker necklaces, AOL.com, and Zima.
