Jillian Venters was a fairly spooky and morbid child. When she discovered the existence of the whole Gothic sub-culture, she clapped her hands with glee and fell upon it like a babybat upon a box of Count Chocula cereal. Since then, the Lady of the Manners has spent a not inconsiderable amount of time trying to gently persuade others in her chosen subculture that being a polite Goth is much, much more subversive than just wearing T-shirts with "edgy" sayings on them. She lives in Seattle.
This book is informative, funny, good advice, and easy to read.
The Goth subculture has sadly had it's share of unfortunate associations and misconceptions, but all of that is put to rest in this wonderful book.
This is a book I would strongly recommend to anyone considering getting into the Goth scene or to parents whose children are into Goth.
I love this book. Its a very good guide for anyone who is in or learning about the goth subculture. I follow Jillian on tumblr this book has her personality all over it.Published 1 month ago by Amanda
