Yeah. No. Totally. by Lisa Wells


Out of print!

A searing portrait of a generation on the brink, Yeah. No. Totally. delivers the bad news. With a voice at once angry, soulful, fearless, and anarchistic, Lisa Wells pulls no punches. From the self-conscious nights at the bar to the shores of a river that no longer exists, from the internet message boards to the motel rooms after the show, Wells has seen herself, and she has seen us. This is what we look like.

Praise for Yeah. No. Totally.

"It's audacious—hell, it's practically painting a target on your ass and running through a firing range—for an author to come out of nowhere and try to speak for an entire generation. The important thing is, she's here now, and we should all pay attention."

-The Stranger

“You think the kids aren’t listening? The kids are listening. Lisa Wells – a daughter of Portland, Oregon – has been listening, and watching, her whole life: in bedrooms, bars, and on the streets of foreign towns. She’s been taking notes, too. In Yeah. No. Totally.she presents her findings in a suite of nuanced, artfully sculpted think-pieces on topics from lost rock clubs to the barrios of Nicaragua, capturing more than a few subtle truths about friends and fathers along the way. If you’ve been looking for a bright, wise guide to the times, Ms. Wells has a whole world to show you.”

– Jon Raymond, author of Livability and The Half-Life
