Carol Cooper - Pop Culture Considered as an Uphill Bicycle Race


Hardcover book.

The first collection of essays about contemporary music, art, film, literature, television, and nightlife trends by Harlem-based cultural critic Carol Cooper. For the focus of this book Cooper has chosen stories that first appeared in various British and American publications during the last 20 years of the 20th Century.

As one of the few pop journalists then allowed to write regularly about emerging trends in world music, ethnic films, and underground genre literature, she was often first on the mainstream scene to offer opinions about subsequently influential artists from Spike Lee and Sade, to sf-author M. John Harrison to graphic novelist Dave Mack.
