Beginning to See the Light: Sex, Hope, and Rock-and-Roll

Ellen Willis


Written by New Yorker’s inimitable first pop music critic, this book presents the perspective of a radical and rational political realm, to look at rock-and-roll, sexuality, and above all, freedom. Here the text captures the thrill of music, the disdain of authoritarian culture, and the rebellious spirit of the 1960s and 1970s.

Keywords: New Yorker, music, pop, rock-and-roll, sexuality, freedom, authoritarian culture, rebellious spirit, 1960s, 1970s
