I got a free book for resubbing to N+1, a really excellent magazine. 
They sent me "What was the hipster: a sociological investigation". 
Awl.com is a website that shares the N+1 sensibility as some of the same 
contributors like Chris Lehmann and Choire Sicha.

I remember the first time I heard the word "hipster". It was back in 
1962. A fellow student at Bard who was a bit older than me even though 
we were in the same class laughed at something I said and then told me, 
"Lou, you are a real hipster". Being a hipster back then was much more 
of an attitude than what it appears to be today--a style.
