Each month I pick a theme and select 5 books that are somehow related to that theme.
MAY: BLANK GENERATION
When I was in Seventh grade, a friend gave me the soundtrack to the film That Summer. It's an amazing collection of songs by The Ramones, Patti Smith, The Only Ones, Wreckless Eric, Nick Lowe, Boomtown Rats, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Elvis Costello and Richard Hell and the Voidoids.
To celebrate the month of May, I’ve selected five books (including Richard Hell’s autobiography) that have me thinking about travel, poetry, art and music. Click on the individual titles below to read detailed descriptions.
