From the "War on Hippies" to the Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, the story of Modern Lovers is a high octane tale of Brutalist architecture, rock 'n' roll ambition and the struggle for identity in a changing world. One of punk rock's foundational documents, the archetype for indie obsession and all but disowned by its author, The Modern Lovers was an album doomed by its own coolness from day one. Powered by the two-chord wonder “Roadrunner” and its proclamation that “I'm in love with rock 'n' roll,”The Modern Lovers is the essential document of American alienation, an escape route from the cultural wasteland of postwar suburbia. The Modern Lovers is the bridge connecting the Velvet Underground and the Sex Pistols; they were peers of the New York Dolls and friends with Gram Parsons and they would splinter into Talking Heads, The Cars, and The Real Kids. But The Modern Lovers was never meant to be an album. A collection of demos, recorded in fits and starts as Jonathan Richman and his band negotiate modernity and the music industry. It is a collection of songs about a city and a society in flux, grappling with ancient corruptions and bright-eyed idealism. Richman observes a city all but abandoned by adults, ravaged by white flight and urban renewal, veering towards anarchy as old world social moors collide with new attitudes. It is a city stands in stark contrast to the the ranchstyle bedroom community where he was raised. All of these conflicts are churned through Richman's intellectual acuity and emotional unrest to create one of the 20th century's most enduring documents of post-adolescent malaise.

“It’s ‘Friends’ meets ‘Almost Famous’ meets the beach read you’ll be recommending all summer.” –TheSkimm From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Vacationers, a smart, highly entertaining novel about a tight-knit group of friends from college— and what it means to finally grow up, well after adulthood has set in. Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adult lives suddenly begins to unravel, and the secrets and revelations that are finally let loose—about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them—can never be reclaimed. Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.

"This is the first biography of the unique American musician and songwriter Jonathan Richman whose career has spanned three decades. Achieving worldwide recognition for his musical commentary in the recent hit film There's Something About Mary, Richman had already been a pop star in the mid-1970s with hits such as 'Roadrunner' and 'Egyptian Reggae', while earlier he was a proto-punk hero with his band the Modern Lovers and associated with the Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol." "Meticulously researched, with exclusive interviews with former members of his band the Modern Lovers, ex-members of the Velvet Underground and others who have known him intimately, and with detailed descriptions of concerts and recordings, this unauthorized biography gives an insight into the creative genius of one of the USA's true musical originals."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Author: Barefoot Doctor
Barefoot Doctor's Handbook for Modem Lovers is the third of a trilogy of handbooks dealing with the 'eternal' triumvirate that appears to make the material world go round, namely Power, Money and Sex (PMS). Handbook for Modem Lovers provides a Wayward guide to help you discover new depths of sexual love within yourself. I have come (fairly) clean in this book about my own sexuality in the hope that modern lovers the world over will be inspired to do likewise, as I believe that bringing things out into the open is good for people's health and will be helpful in reducing general tension levels on the planet at this time. Sex as an expression of anything other than love is like food without nutritional value. It fills the gap for an instant, then you're hungry again. Sex as an expression of love nourishes you in a cumulative way, each encounter building your sense of self-value, increasing your capacity to love yourself and others. Not that there's anything intrinsically wrong (or right) with loveless sex. Fast food is sometimes the expedient choice. Fast sex can be exhilarating. But just as your digestive organs find it hard to make much use of mass-market burgers, your soul finds it hard to make sense of loveless sexual encounters. You don't need to be in a long-term relationship to express love when you have sex. You can express love with a complete stranger as easily as you can express no love with a long-term partner. That part's entirely up to you.
This book captures the literary lives of these woman as well as the complex subcultures they inhabited--Harlem, the Village, and glamorous midtown Manhattan.

In the teens and twenties, New York was home to a rich variety of literary subcultures. Within these intermingled worlds, gender lines and other boundaries were crossed in ways that were hardly imaginable in previous decades. Among the bohemians of Greenwich Village, the sophisticates of the Algonquin Round Table, and the literati of the Harlem Renaissance, certain women found fresh, powerful voices through which to speak and write. Enda St. Vincent Millay and Dorothy Parker are now best remembered for their colorful lives; Genevieve Taggard, Gwendolyn Bennett, and Helene Johnson are hardly remembered at all. Yet each made a serious literary contribution to the meaning of modern femininity, relationship, and selfhood. Making Love Modern uncovers the deep historical sensitivity and interest in these women's love poetry. Placing their work in the context of subcultures nested within national culture, Nina Miller explores the tensions that make this literature so rewarding for contemporary readers. A poetry of intimate expression, it also functioned powerfully as public assertion. The writers themselves were high-profile embodiments of femininity, the local representatives of New Womanhood within their male-centered subcultural worlds. This book captures the literary lives of these woman as well as the complex subcultures they inhabited--Harlem, the Village, and glamorous midtown Manhattan.
