It seems not that long ago, but maybe it is. A time when hormones raged, the American Dream was caked in rust, music actually mattered and the one thing that meant more than any other was... Escape!
"Punk Rock and Trailer Parks" conjures up the oppressive insanity of growing up in a small town, the day-to-day weirdness of the trailer parks tucked away therein, the magic allure of sex and the necessary comforts of friendship, the mystical counter-culture to turn outcasts into heroes and, most of all, the transcendent power of music, specifically the punk rock of the late 1970's which redefined, transported, and ultimately, perhaps, disappointed a generation.
"Punk Rock and Trailer Parks" touches on themes and emotions that are universal to any kid in America who knows that there must be something else out there other than this...
"Punk Rock and Trailer Parks" is an evocative, hilarious, and ultimately poignant book that will appeal to anyone whose youthful dreams live on.
