In the 1990s, when music was recorded on cassettes and movies on VHS, Vanessa Berry was reacting to the loneliness of life in the suburbs by constructing imaginary worlds and identities from video hits, late-night music programs, band t-shirts, mixtapes and zines, and the ‘dark energy’ of the Goths. A memoir in essay form, Ninety9 is about the loneliness of adolescence, the importance of friendship, and the magical enclaves to be discovered in the city. Illustrated with the author’s drawings and photos, it provides a guide to the end of the millennium for those who were too young to be there, and vivid memories for those who were.
