Tacky, by Rax King

Staff Pick

King's debut essay collection touches on cultural cornerstones that would be familiar to anyone who came of age in the late '90s and early 2000s--it's positively redolent with Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Bath and Body Works spritzes--and teems with the awkwardness of adolescence. But what makes this collection so refreshing is her attention to the kitschy, the trashy, and the tacky; interweaving a well-honed snark with odes to things that more highbrow critics would turn their noses up at, King takes readers on a ride that is unrepentant in its joy, teaching us to love in ways that are shameless, silly, and just plain fun.
