"Madeleine Brand talks with Abram Shalom Himelstein and Jamie Schweser, co-authors of Tales of a Punk Rock Nothing. Both writers lived in Washington, D.C. in the early 1990's, when punk rock ruled the city's alternative rock scene. Their experiences are the basis for their self-published book, which follows the exploits of a Jewish kid who leaves his small, southern town to live in a house full of punk rock activists."
