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.
This is a book I would strongly recommend to anyone considering getting into the Goth scene or to parents whose children are into Goth.
One of the things I love the most about Jillian Venters, the original "Cupcake Goth," is that she doesn't take herself too seriously.
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 2 months ago by Amanda
