Description

ONE OF DAVID BOWIE’S TOP 100 MUST READ BOOKS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE 2013 DOCUMENTARY FILM TEENAGE WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM THE AUTHOR The acclaimed history of the century and a half of ferment, folly and angst that resulted in the arrival of ‘the teenager’ in 1945, from award-winning, Sunday Times bestselling author Jon Savage. Ringing with music, from ragtime to swing, Teenage roams London, New York, Paris and Berlin with hooligans and Apaches; explores free love and eternal youth; meets flappers and zootsuiters, the Bright Young People and the Lost Generation. The stories come fast and furious, comic, poignant, painfully moving; Savage fuses popular culture, politics and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life. ‘Compulsive reading . . . a rich, rewarding book that makes an important contribution to cultural history.’ NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW ‘The definitive history of youth in revolt.’ ROLLING STONE ‘[Savage] can bring a beguiling blend of gravitas, wit, scholarship, and a slyly appreciative eye for the subversive, to any topic he approaches. Teenage provides a panoramic scope for his talents.’ INDEPENDENT ‘Savage has produced a book that may well change how people think about teenagers.’ GUARDIAN (This book is part of a reissue of Jon Savage’s seminal works: 1966, Teenage, and England’s Dreaming)
