On sale now: What was the Hipster?

Dear readers, we’re extremely pleased to announce that the third installment of our small book series, What was the Hipster? is now available for pre-order. Based on a panel discussion of the same name held at the New School last spring—featuring editor Mark Greif, hipster critic Christian Lorentzen, and contributor Jace Clayton aka DJ/Rupture—the book represents our investigation of the rise and fall of the contemporary hipster.

In addition to the panel transcript, the book includes responses from critics Jennifer Baumgardner, Patrice Evans aka The Assimilated Negro, and Margo Jefferson, as well as essays on douchebags, Hasids versus hipsters, and ill-fated sneaker shop Alife Rivington. It ships in mid-October; order your copy today!
