Nathan Rabin's memoir, The Big Rewind: A Memoir Brought To You By Pop Culture, is now in stores. It's been called "hilarious, sad, truthful memoir [and] compulsively readable" by Roger Ebert. It's been called "neurotically manic, and very funny" by Neal Pollack. It's been called "terrific" by Patton Oswalt. And it's been called "awesome" by Nathan's A.V. Club co-workers. And we're not just saying that because he shares an office with us. It's a first-rate book about a difficult childhood informed by and reflected in Nathan's intense, meaningful relationship with everything from Nirvana to The Simpsons to Freaks.
