Now Reading: The Anxious Hipster

To say “now reading” is a little disingenuous. Brian Clarey, editor at YES! Weekly, gave me a copy of his book earlier this week and I finished it more quickly than any book in recent memory.

The Anxious Hipster, and Other Barflies I’ve Known is a collection of columns he’s written over the past five years. The book starts out with stories from Greensboro and moves to New Orleans (where he lived for 15 years) and Long Island (where he grew up). Brian is giving readings all over the area, so even if you are strapped for cash you can catch a piece of this book. I particularly enjoyed the stories from Greensboro, not because the others weren’t interesting but because they helped bring the city to life.
