Book Recommendation: ‘The Nineties’ by Chuck Klosterman

Recommended by KIMBERLY WELLS, bookseller at Novel Bay Booksellers

We self-proclaimed children of the nineties tend to remember the decade with fondness, but for a phase of life that unofficially began with the fall of the Berlin Wall and ended with 9/11, this era was about so much more than the clothes and music.

Author Chuck Klosterman highlights culturally important moments of the end of the 20th century and explains how they represent so much more than just a band, car chase, war, athlete, jury trial, movie, school shooting or snowstorm. Klosterman mixes nostalgia with history lessons, resulting in an educating trip down memory lane.
