"Excellent. . . . Christgau writes with contagious insight about the records, novels, movies and paintings that have shaped his thinking."--Rolling Stone
The Dean of American Rock Critics, Robert Christgau has been writing about pop culture since he was twelve and getting paid for it since he was twenty-two, covering rock for Esquire in its heyday and personifying the music beat at The Village Voice for over three decades. Christgau chronicled many of the key cultural shifts of the last half century and revolutionized the cultural status of the music critic in the process. Going into the City is a look back at the upbringing that grounded him, the history that transformed him, and the music, books, and films that showed him the way. It is also a loving portrait of a lost New York--an homage to the city of Christgau's youth, from Queens to the Lower East Side, that exists mostly in memory today. And it's a love story about the Greenwich Village girl who roamed this realm of possibility with him.
"Honest, detailed, stirring and sweet."--Time
"A deeply smart, charmingly gregarious read."--New York magazine
"A New York love story like no other. . . . As caustic and confrontational as a Clash single, yet as sustaining as an Al Green LP . . . instantly memorable."--Rob Sheffield, author of Love Is a Mix Tape
