Overview

X vs. Y: A Culture War, a Love Story by Eve Epstein, Leonora Epstein

Seen through the eyes of siblings 14 years apart in age, X vs. Y is a smart, funny, stylish, and visually driven anthology that com­piles and compares their two generational cul­tures. It’s a story told through lists, infographics, essays, anecdotes, and images, with chapters devoted to fashion, TV, music, technology, dating, books, and movies. Through musings on topics such as leg warmers, Clueless, Sassy magazine, and MTV, along with mixtapes and TV characters, X vs. Y paints a portrait of two intricately entwined generations.

If you lived in the 80's and 90's, then you know more than what this book provides. The two authors are probably good at writing articles for magazines (paper and internet), but their writing style doesn't translate well into an entire book. As a Gen Xer, I am fascinated by the distinctions of all generations but this book lacks depth and subject matter on X and Y.

if you have a sibling with a considerable age gap, you'll identify with a lot in this exploration of two generations.
