August Book of the Month: The Big Rewind!
The Green Apple AV Club has teamed up with the kids at French Press Films to bring you a fancy new video for our August Book of the Month, The Big Rewind by Nathan Rabin.
This isn't just your average pop culture memoir peppered with references and snark-- while that's expected of Rabin, one of the head writers of the Onion's notorious AV Club, The Big Rewind is the surprisingly moving story of Rabin's tumultuous childhood, his upbringing through various group and foster homes, reconnecting with his father, and how becoming a critic actually saved his life. Through it all, Rabin's writing is hilarious, but most importantly, genuine.
