  • Most Likely to Endure

    With the exception of the era-specific music, what the kids like in Dazed and Confused is pretty much the same thing kids like now, which goes a long way in explaining why, 10 years later, the video's a staple in college dorms, owned by kids who weren't conceived yet in the Seventies and couldn't buy a ticket to the R-rated movie when it came out in the Nineties.

    When it comes to coming of age novels, "Manuel Luis Martinez's protagonist, Robert Lomos, is a bit different, and Martinez's first novel, Drift, is, too. Robert moves, all right -- from San Antonio to Los Angeles and back -- but his erratic path in the footprints of Martinez's expert narrative one is anything but linear." Martinez will be at the Cepeda Branch Library on Wednesday, June 4, at 7pm.
