ONE OF DAVID BOWIE'S TOP 100 MUST READ BOOKS
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE 2013 DOCUMENTARY FILM TEENAGE
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM THE AUTHOR

The acclaimed history of the century and a half of ferment, folly and angst that resulted in the arrival of 'the teenager' in 1945, from award-winning, Sunday Times bestselling author Jon Savage.

Ringing with music, from ragtime to swing, Teenage roams London, New York, Paris and Berlin with hooligans and Apaches; explores free love and eternal youth; meets flappers and zootsuiters, the Bright Young People and the Lost Generation. The stories come fast and furious, comic, poignant, painfully moving; Savage fuses popular culture, politics and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life.

'Compulsive reading . . . a rich, rewarding book that makes an important contribution to cultural history.'
NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

'The definitive history of youth in revolt.'
ROLLING STONE


'[Savage] can bring a beguiling blend of gravitas, wit, scholarship, and a slyly appreciative eye for the subversive, to any topic he approaches. Teenage provides a panoramic scope for his talents.'
INDEPENDENT

'Savage has produced a book that may well change how people think about teenagers.'
GUARDIAN
