Soapbox: Essays, Diatribes, Homilies and Screeds, 1980-1997
This book collects the witty, irreverent essays and musings of one of America's foremost pop culture critics. Almost twenty years' worth of columns, concerning a whole range of topics -- from music to art, politics to food -- come alive in this survey of the insightful and hip writings of Glenn O'Brien. As a journalist and writer, O'Brien has worked on projects with Warhol and Madonna, and written for a host of magazines. Whether writing about the Stock Market or the punk group the Dead Kennedys. O'Brien brings to his eclectic taste both unflagging insight and an ample dose of humor.
