This group is for anyone interested in reading and discussing non-fiction books. There isn't a specific sub-genre we will concentrate on, so whether you're interested in memoirs, science, politics, psychology, comedy, etc., this is the club for you! We welcome open, frank, and constructive discussions. Our aim will be quarterly discussions, but if we get a lot of interest, we can increase our meeting frequency. We meet at various coffeehouses throughout Chicago, locations will be announced one month prior to our book club meeting. We can't wait to meet you!
The Nineties: a wise and funny reckoning with the decade that gave us slacker/grunge irony about the sin of trying too hard, during the greatest shift in human consciousness of any decade in American history.
In The Nineties, Chuck Klosterman makes a home in all of it: the film, the music, the sports, the TV, the politics, the changes regarding race and class and sexuality, the yin/yang of Oprah and Alan Greenspan. In perhaps no other book ever written would a sentence like, "The video for 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' was not more consequential than the reunification of Germany" make complete sense.
