Gotham Books: In the twilight of the 1980’s, there was an enchanted land in the woods of Western Massachusetts, where punks and hippies lived side by side in a time before goals, ambitions, exercise, relationships or responsibilities. In 1986, Richard Rushfield traveled from sunny California to enroll in this land. Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost takes us to a campus populated by deadheads, club kids, poets, and insomniac filmmakers, at a time when America saw the rise of punk and grunge alongside neo-conservatism, earnest calls for political correctness and Take Back the Night vigils.
Shunned by all of the school’s reigning subcultures, Rushfield joins the most hated clique on campus, the Supreme Dicks, navigates a dating scene where to express interest in anything is social suicide, and mostly avoids class where hippie professors blather on about post-structuralism.
Culminating in a mad clash of slackers and yuppies, Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost captures a watershed moment for American youth in one hilarious, and unforgettable trip.
