Come join literary provocateur Lisa Carver on a hilarious, poignant search for truth and meaning at the end of the "American Century." With the same outrageous humor, piercing insight and racy flair that have made her 'zine Rollerderby such a phenomenal counterculture sensation, this idiosyncratic observer digs into her own life and shines the spotlight on Lawrence Welk and Anna Nicole Smith, white trash and beauty queens, teenage sexual yearnings and Tonya Harding, and other markers of our times. The result? A thoroughly provocative exploration of the pretensions, joys, and absurdities of modern American life - a wildly entertaining book that will leave you dizzy with delight and intoxicated by this striking new voice.
