The MALS Program Presents:
A Conversation with Greil Marcus About Lipstick Traces
Tuesday November 13, 2012, 6:00 pm
In 1989, after nine years of writing and research, Greil Marcus released his influential book Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century. According to Ben Brantley ofThe New York Times, “Lipstick Traces has the energy of its obsessions, and it snares you in the manner of those intense, questing and often stoned sessions of intellectual debate you may have experienced in your college years. It was destined, in other words, to achieve cult status.” John Harris of The Guardian hailed it as “the one book I would save from my proverbial burning house.”
Greil Marcus is a music journalist, culture critic and author of twenty-seven books and edited series on topics ranging from rock music, historic events and everywhere in between. ANew York Times review of his 2011 book The Doors described his style as “brainy but fevered, as if the fate of Western society hung on a chord progression”. He was the first reviews editor at Rolling Stone magazine and has done music critiques and political commentary for many other publications including The Village Voice. He lives in Berkeley, California.
