The Specter of Suburban Contentment

Ron Charles in the Washington Post:

Here we have a generation of young adults away from home for the first time, free to enjoy the most experimental period of their lives, yet they’re choosing books like 13-year-old girls – or their parents. The only specter haunting the groves of American academe seems to be suburban contentment.

Charles does see signs of hope though – in the same place everyone seems to see hope these days, the tubes of the internet.
