Well Met: Renaissance Faires and the American Counterculture - Rachel Lee Rubin
It was interesting to read about a world that I journey through in terms of being counter-culture. While I knew that Ren Faires were not main stream, I never through of them as transgressive to the norm, which I suppose says something about myself. Rubin has written a well rounded book touching on the history, the culture, the growth and change, and even the resentments and oppositions to Renaissance Faires.Slate has a pretty good article on the book as well which can be found at:http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/books/2013/02/renaissance_faires_rachel_lee_rubin_s_well_met_reviewed.html
