Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto Summary & Study Guide
Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto by Chuck Klosterman is a novel about the development of Generation X, and how cultural icons both affected this development, and were affected by the same generation. This is not a scientific look, but rather, a personal one that examines the life of a Gen Xer through the eyes of someone who was in the center of a bombardment of cultural media, and who has embraced that media throughout his life as part of his continued career. Klosterman, a part of Generation X, seeks to explain how his culture affects and has been affected by mainstream media and popular culture icons. He begins by using movies to explain the lack of personal relationships within those of his generation. Klosterman believes unrealistic romance movies have led to unrealistic concepts of love. Klosterman also points out how The Sims video game mimics life, how the "Real World" television show shaped his generation's singular sense of self, how "cool" is a relative term, and how tribute bands are a statement of the state of the world.
