the newest 'skinhead' novel hits bookstores nationwide..
Although not an entirely accurate, American Skin will certainly appeal to people who have no idea as to what skinheads are, and Skinheads themselves. The title of the book is somewhat misleading, as American Skin goes much deeper then just youth Subculture (skinhead-ism). It's a coming-of-age story that is set in Chicago with a 'twist', so to speak. One other thing that caught my attention was the detail in which the book was written; the places, events, streets, and even some of the people are not fictitious, and did exist in Chicago in the 80s and even now. I do recommend this book, however, people should not use it for a 'manual' on skinheads or any other youth subculture. For reading on the accurate history of Skinheads, check out The Spirit of '69 by George Marshall.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
