Read full description of the books Fargö Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural Nörth Daköta:The year is 1983, and Chuck Klosterman just wants to rock. The only problem is, he's in the fifth grade, his hair's too short, his pants are too denim, and the town's too small. The Huey Lewis and the News song blaring out of the radio isn't helping, either. That's when Chuck's brother arrives home with a cassette from hell -- Motley Crue's "Shout at the Devil." And so the twisted journey begins... In this hilarious, young-man-growing-up-with-a-soundtrack tradition, "Fargo Rock City" chronicles Klosterman's formative years and the history of rock through the lens of '80s heavy metal. He knows what it's like to slow-dance to a Poison tune; to sleep inno- cently under satanic symbols; to confess your lust for Lita Ford; to understand that Bon Jovi sounds best in a pickup; to shoot baskets as a member of the KISS Army; to get intellectual about Guns N' Roses; and, yes, to have a nasty relationship with your first ATM card.
With a voice like Ace Frehley's guitar, Chuck hacks and riffs his way through this savvy, deliriously funny memoir of growing up as a shameless metalhead in Wyndmere, North Dakota. Against all odds, he parties like a rock star. Your story may be exactly the same or completely different, but if you grew up anywhere close to the 1980s, then your life has been touched by hair metal. Chuck Klosterman is here to explain why this matters.
