5.0 out of 5 stars not such a bad book., May 17, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bohemians: The Glamorous Outcasts (Hardcover)
i actually really like this book & i am not an intellectual featherweight. i agree to an extent w/ the above- or belownoted comments; there are probably wavery facts herein. i wish there werent. unfortunately, that is something i see continually in non-fiction books, particularly bothersome when the reader [such as the other reviewer or myself] actually knows the obscure facts. i would say this problem is an artefact of the postpostmodern age, but i am certain it predates it. having seen so many supposed historical accounts resplendent w/ the same issues, i can only wonder how much we really know about anything that predates or is distant from our own situational awareness.

this book is, however, an excellent overview of a subject which should have but strangely has not been accorded too much book length scrutiny. since the bohemian contingent of postpostmodern life has been co-opted into the macrocosm &, in commitment, reduced to the nanocosm, perhaps people who pick this up will be more inspired & enlightened. @this point, there is not that much better in this realm for which one can hope.
