20 Years of Rolling Stone: What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been

Jann S. Wenner, Other Friendly Press $24.95 (460p) ISBN 978-0-914919-10-0
Rolling Stone's brand of impressionistic journalism has been fairly steady over the 20 years of the magazine's existence. This omnibus features Hunter Thompson on local politics in Aspen, Colo., Tom Wolfe on fashion, Greil Marcus on Woodstock. Interviews with Bob Dylan, Sting, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, and pieces on Stevie Wonder, the Grateful Dead and Michael Jackson lift the art of fanzine writing to new heights. For reportage of great social significance, there are articles on Kent State, Charles Manson and the Karen Silkwood case. Among the 135 pictures are Richard Avedon's minimalist photos of politicians and Ralph Steadman's Watergate cartoons. This coffee-table album is for fans. BOMC and QPBC selections. (November 9)
