Little Guide To Unhip






" .... Rigby wickedly relates her run ins with hipness, and unhipness as the case often is, with regard to the items on her top 50 list of things unhip, and I found myself relating to so many of her stories.  It made me feel a sense of camaraderie with every unhip person out there, knowing that in our communal uncoolness, there is something awesomely cool.  And I, for one, loved Leo Sayer as a teenager, I am just saying.

I think this book is perfect for Brits with a good sense of humor, and Americans with a good sense of adventure.  When you traverse into unfamiliar territory, there is always wikipedia, right?  This was a nice, light comic read, that left me giggling, and pondering the possibilities of an American equivalent.  I highly recommend it."  Tiffany Harkleroad

Little Guide to Unhip had me in stitches...beige ones, of course! What an excellent idea for a book. There are 50 entries, and each on is just as hilarious at the one before. My faves so far are the chapters on Early Birds, Sitting Downstairs on the Bus, Badminton, Holiday in Austria and Leo Sayer. Poor K. J. Rigby is one unhip gal. And what I find hilarious is the inevitable appearance in many of the entries of K.J.'s sister "Ann," the two girls struggling to attain entry into hipsterdom that they will sadly never come (especially as Going Places With Your Sister is another entry!). Christmas is another chapter here that is hilarious, and, actually, I believe this is a marvelous book would be a wonderful stocking stuffer for that most unhip of holidays. Buy copies for all the family!!  Vince C
