The classic underground novel about a Jewish kid from Tennessee, who moves to D.C. and hangs out with militant vegetarians, manifesto-writing shoplifters, and strippers who write feminist theory. The story is told through journals, letters and zines. It's got everything you could want out of a novel: a chase scene, a sex scene, plus angst-ridden critiques of American society.

I downloaded this book for my nook. Many of the pages from the zines and flyers are too small to read even at the largest setting. I do not recommend it as an ebook.

Himelstein was one of my creative writing teachers when I was in high school and I absolutely loved him. The interesting thing is that I had recieved his book as a gift a whole year before I realized he had written it. I loved it from start to finish and even though I was not apart of the punk rock generation, it was because of this book that I wanted to know more.

Story of the true DC punx. I've never read anything like this. Other books just have stuff that you don't want to read, but this book kept me interested. I read it more times than I could count. I recommend this book to all you punx out there, and maybe for those who just got into the scene.

I bought this book today and i read the entire thing today, that is quite different for me because i normally dont read all that often. I did like this book in a way but i didnt like it in a a way too. I expected it to be totally different then what it turned out to be. Its nothing compared to the book that i finished yesterday...'Driving With Shannon' By. S. Robinson. But i do reccomend Tales of a Punk Rock Nothing to you. It was quite confusing in some places because i didnt understand some of hte political parts in it. But im glad to say that i read it.
