I Read Everything on this Hipster Lit Flowchart BEFORE It Was Cool

When the New York Times took on modern hipsters in their article How to Live Without Irony they caused quite a stir for a number of reasons, and the reaction was immediate and extreme (this IS the internet after all!). I leave it to you to peruse the article and determine your thoughts – I am in the midst of reading ‘Retromania’ and certainly have thoughts around creativity in popular art in the current generation, but not so much on the entirety of culture in this regard.

Anyway, GoodReads took on creating a literary flowchart for the hipster generation. Check out the full graphic and let us know what you think!

  1. So clearly, I am as unhip as it gets. I do have Infinite Jest, but haven’t read it. I *have* read “Cryptonomicon” multiple times, though. And “The Name of the Rose”. But I guess that just shows how old I am, rather than how hip. :(
