Review: Spike, Mike, Slackers, & Dykes: A Guided Tour Across a Decade of American Independent Cinema

User Review  - Joe - Goodreads

If you're at all interested in independent cinema in the late 80s and early 90s, this is a pretty good starter book on the subject. Not very indepth or expansive, but a good toe in the water. Read full review
