Sally Breen gives voice to her generation - those somehow smashed in between all the X's and the Y's - maybe lost, maybe beat but most of all casual.
'three things happened at the dawn of the 1990s that would change everything about how we had lived before. We graduated high school, Microsoft shipped Windows 3.0 and America started the Gulf War. We became adults in the 1990s. the start of the world gone mega. Gone global. Gone mad. We became the Casuals and this is our story.' the Casuals is the story of the life and times of one young woman's journey through the last two decades of the 20th century; from her pop-fuelled adolescence in the 1980s to a full-blown grunge ride in the 1990s, Sally Breen is the girl your mother warned you about. A charged and heady exploration of sex, drugs and pop culture, it is also a meditation on loss, death and grief as the author struggles to reconcile her place in a chaotic world. Sally Breen gives voice to her generation; those somehow smashed in between all the Xers and Ys - maybe lost, maybe beat, but most of all casual. 'a stunning example of the honest, meticulous and beautifully rendered details of a supposed ordinary life' - Matthew Condon 'a memoir of unquiet things told quietly but with courageous brio against a finely etched suburban background of the 1980s and 1990s' - Frank Moorhouse
