Review of Generation X


From New Statesman & Society

by John Williams

Generation X's Unique Selling Point is its fetching square format and wide margins peppered with zappy neologisms. . . . Underneath the fancy-dan trappings, though, Generation X is a surprisingly endearing read: the tale of threemiddle-class drifters in their late twenties. . . . It's a kind of updated Jules et Jim in which neither of them gets the girl: self-conscious as hell, butcharming too.
