Hairstyles of the Damned by Joe Meno

I decided to move my long-running rock and roll book club over from blogger to here. Yay! In case you don’t know what it is, it’s basically a log of what I read with short comments. I only write up books I like, so here goes! Check out Hairstyles of the Damned by Joe Meno. It’s about an adolescent boy in the suburbs drifting through the suburban punk, metal, and hardcore scenes in the early ’90s. He suffers a lot of those teenage maladies, he’s in love with his best friend, his parents are divorcing, he is a spazz. I liked the touches of his poems, mix tapes, and other cool stuff. It really reminded me of my teen years in a good way.
