A tribute to Sassy magazine and all of its contents, including but not limited to: cute bands, Lynda Barry, zits as beauty marks, insulting Tiffani Amber Thiessen, giving you free R.E.M. vinyl, love advice from Thurston Moore, feminism, 'zines, Evan Dando's disembodied head, quizzes, bitchin 90s fashion, unrequited love for Keanu Reeves, and the importance of being sassy.
For a certain type of girl wending her way through adolescence in the mid 1990s, the bible was a paperback novel with a hot pink spine. It was Blake Nelson’s debut and it was called, aptly, Girl. The cover bore a blurry black-and-white portrait of a girl in motion: in peasant blouse and pendant, she was flipping her dark hair over her shoulder in something between a head-bang and a shrug.
