Shake It Up: Great American Writing on Rock and Pop from Elvis to Jay Z

Edited by Kevin Dettmar and Jonathan Lethem

“Pop writing, at its best, doesn’t know the difference between desire and theory, which is precisely the reason for its power and its persistence. Lethem and Dettmar’s expansive anthology renders this wild, polychrome tradition, and the state of play today, with gusto.”—Ben Ratliff, author of Every Song Ever
