The Nineties Summary

The Nineties: When Surface Was Depth by Michael Bracewell

This is an anatomy of a confused decade, the 1990s - a still-warm, still-bizarre, still-confused and confusing decade. The author talks to and about a host of representative figures from the 1990s, some already forgotten, some absolutely emblematic of their times - from Hanson to Alexander McQueen, from Tracey Emin to Ulrika Jonsson, from the Spice Girls to Duran Duran. Painstakingly, sometimes painfully, he puts all the pieces together and starts to make sense of it all.

The Nineties Reviews

'It is enormously tasty - a pleasure. Michael Bracewell is Saul Bellow's Humboldt.' Guardian 'An enthralling guide to our times.' GQ from the reviews for England is MIne: 'Surely the strangest and most beautiful book on pop music ever written' THE BIG ISSUE 'Bracewell's witty, free-ranging text links artistic visions of England from the Arcadian ideal of Chaucer and Elizabethan literature to the films, youth movements and pop lyrics of today. His prose crackles with dry insight... This is an audaciously ambitious book, yoking together the sublime and the ridiculous with admirable seriousness.' VOX
