Out of the Vinyl Deeps

Ellen Willis was the New Yorker’s first pop culture critic, a radical feminist and a trail-blazing woman. From 1968 to 1975, Willis wrote about rock and roll for the esteemed magazine, and throughout her career, she wrote for a range of publications about gender, race, class and American politics, usually through the lens of music.

Willis died in 2006, leaving behind a collection of insightful, prescient writing, and a feminist movement that would not have been the same without her. Now, many of those essays have been collected into a book, edited by her daughter, the wonderful Nona Willis Aronowitz.

Out of the Vinyl Deeps: Ellen Willis on Rock Music, is out now, and if you like reading about music, gender and how the world works, then you will love it.
