X Saves the World

Here’s my friend Jeff Gordiner, talking about his new book X Saves the World.

I offer it as a compelling argument against anyone who thinks GenX didn’t really exist. I hadn’t really thought about GenX myself since, gosh, maybe ten years ago. I even put together an anthology back when, attempting to correct all the false impressions about what GenX might or could be. But then gave up on trying and just dedicated to doing.

Over the past ten years, GenX has accomplished a whole lot. And, as Jeff argues, a lot more quietly and with less of a need for “credit” than both their predecessors and those who followed afterwards.

At a moment when a quiet buster is running for president against a loud boomer, this explanation of GenX is particularly relevant – and, I hope, useful.
