The Annals of Rock Snobbery

« Previous · Home Next »


The co-author of the two Snob books thus far, David Kamp, has an altogether weightier tome en route, called The United States of Arugula. It’s a nonfiction account of the rise of American food culture, from pioneers like James Beard, Julia Child, and Alice Waters to celebrity chefs like Emeril, Mario, and Wolfgang, from the dark days of tinned Spam to our current lattes-and-sushi Age of Aquarius.

In preparation for the book’s September 12 release, Mr. Kamp is preparing a new Web site,, that will also include an archive of his music and film writings for Vanity Fair and GQ. Right now, the site is just a place-holding “splash page,” as the young people say, but it should be up and running in a few weeks. Please pay the site a visit soonish.
