Stuff White People Like by Christian Lander

Book Description

They love nothing better than sipping free-trade gourmet coffee, leafing through the Sunday New York Times , and listening to David Sedaris on NPR (ideally all at the same time). Apple products, indie music, food co-ops, and vintage T-shirts make them weak in the knees. They believe they re unique, yet somehow they re all exactly the same, talking about how they get Sarah Silverman s subversive comedy and Wes Anderson s droll films. They re also down with diversity and up on all the best microbrews, breakfast spots, foreign cinema, and authentic sushi. They re organic, ironic, and do not own TVs. You know who they are: They re white people. And they re here, and you re gonna have to deal. Fortunately, here s a book that investigates, explains, and offers advice for finding social success with the Caucasian persuasion. So kick back on your IKEA couch and lose yourself in the ultimate guide to the unbearable whiteness of being. Praise for STUFF WHITE PEOPLE LIKE: The best of a hilarious Web site: an uncannily accurate catalog of dead-on predilections. The Criterion Collection of classic films? Haircuts with bangs? Expensive fruit juice? Blonde on Blonde on the iPod? The author knows who reads The New Yorker and who wears plaid. Janet Maslin s summer picks, The author of "Stuff White People Like" skewers the sacred cows of lefty Caucasian culture, from the Prius to David Sedaris. . . . It gently mocks the habits and pretensions of urbane, educated, left-leaning whites, skewering their passion for Barack Obama and public transportation (as long as it's not a bus), their idle threats to move to Canada, and joy in playing children's games as adults. Kickball, anyone? A handy reference guide with which you can check just how white you are. Hint: If you like only documentaries and think your child is gifted, you glow in the dark, buddy.
