Description

Tacky is about the power of pop culture-like any art-to imprint itself on our lives and shape our experiences, no matter one’s commitment to “good” taste. These fourteen essays are a nostalgia-soaked antidote to the millennial generation’s obsession with irony, putting the aesthetics we hate to love-snakeskin pants, Sex and the City, Cheesecake Factory’s gargantuan menu-into kinder and sharper perspective.
