Pop Literacy

Oct 10, 2019

It’s the smallest of the three generations currently ruling the world—sandwiched between Boomers and Millennials—but Gen X is not skimping on its nostalgia moment, probably because its defining trait is an (ironic, post-modern, skeptical) embrace of pop culture. This week, we run through the many current and upcoming revisitings of Gen X culture, including a book by Wham!’s Andrew Ridgeley, Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill in Broadway musical form, the 25th anniversary of Reality Bites, Hootie & the Blowfish’s reunion tour, the recent death of John Singleton, that Jeffersons and All in the Family live reenactment, and cohost Kimberly Potts’s upcoming Brady Bunch book.
