Nathan Rabin

The Big Rewind: A Memory Brought to You by Pop Culture

This hilariously entertaining memoir by the head entertainment writer for The Onion’s A.V. Club reveals how the pop culture that native Chicagoan Rabin loved so dearly rescued him from a life of suicidal impulses, mental institutions, and the repercussions of parental abandonment. Unwitting accomplices in Rabin’s voyage include an Orthodox Jewish reggae superstar, a New Wave gay cowboy, Jean-Luc Godard, Dr. Dre, J.D. Salinger and The Simpsons’ immortal Frank “Grimey” Grimes. The memoir also features cameos by Billy Bob Thornton, a vomiting Topher Grace, and some dude named Barack Obama.
