Journalist Clements, whose dual citizenship (French and American) gives her a unique vantage from which to direct barbs at 1980s American culture, has put together a group of pieces that tackle why fewer people smoke marijuana today than in the 1960s; why everyone lies to his/her therapist; and why being ``cool'' isn't ``cool'' anymore. She laments the end of laziness as a virtuous pursuit, as the ``Go-for-it!'' generation (she calls them the ``Mutant Elite'') takes over, and the end of elegance. A la Fran Lebowitz Clements hilariously discusses why no one should venture below 14th Street in New York City. Her trenchant views of relationships ring true, and her portraits of rock star Sting and actor Klaus Kinski are revealing. Clements's 19th-century sensibility produces a searing, funny, cynical, and accurate collection. Recommended for medium to large public and most academic libraries.
