About this title

Synopsis:

Come join literary provocateur Lisa Carver on a hilarious, poignant search for truth and meaning at the end of the "American Century." With the same outrageous humor, piercing insight and racy flair that have made her 'zine Rollerderby such a phenomenal counterculture sensation, this idiosyncratic observer digs into her own life and shines the spotlight on Lawrence Welk and Anna Nicole Smith, white trash and beauty queens, teenage sexual yearnings and Tonya Harding, and other markers of our times. The result? A thoroughly provocative exploration of the pretensions, joys, and absurdities of modern American life - a wildly entertaining book that will leave you dizzy with delight and intoxicated by this striking new voice.

Review:

Lisa Carver is America's horniest optimist. With Dancing Queen she writes an ode to all things that make her pants itch, whether it's a visit to the gynecologist, a look at Lawrence Welk's helmet-haired backup singers, or the pulsing of Fabio's surreal pecs. In essays entitled "Other Ladies' Bodies," "In Favor of Underwear," and "The Manifest Destiny of Anna Nicole Smith" she articulates self-consciously white-trash erotics drawn from images of America's popular culture. If you've enjoyed her self-produced zine, Rollerderby, you won't want to miss this, her first book; and if you've yet to discover her zine work, Dancing Queen serves as the perfect introduction to this self-proclaimed leader of "Generation L."
