I’ve been mulling the life and culture of the middle class as part of my mid-life introspection. Imagine my surprise when I read an entry on Accordion Guy’s blog quoting a section of Microserfs that really hit home. I mean Microserfs?! That about a bunch of 20 something geeks with no life. There is something empty and strange in middle aged suburbia that I can’t pin down, but this passage has something to say about it. It is the teenage wasteland of the Who grown up and settled down.
I haven’t read the book, but I may have to.
